Mohonk Mountain House is only 15 minutes from downtown New Paltz, New York, but being there feels like a world away. Founded by the Smiley family in 1869, the massive Victorian castle — a National Historic Landmark — is surrounded by 40,000 acres of protected forest and wildlife. We arrived on a cold November Friday right before dinnertime, so driving up the dark, twisting woodland road was an adventure in itself to kick off the weekend.
Located a quick two-and-a-half-hour drive from New York City, Kingston is a charming Hudson River town that’s been on the come-up these last few years. Divided into three main sections — Uptown Stockade, Midtown, and Downtown Waterfront (historically known as Rondout) — locals and NYC ex-pats alike have been flocking to the city for its charming architecture and gorgeous natural surroundings. It’s full of that indie, DIY spirit that we love. Every eatery, shop and bar is more unique than the last.
Feasting is our column dedicated to cooking, grilling, eating and discovering what's on the menu across America and the world. As warm weather and longer days start to arrive as spring rolls in, we start to dust off our grills and prepare for the grilling season ahead.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
