During the mid- to late-19th century, the City of Poughkeepsie was a hotbed of industrial innovation and production. One operation, which provided employment for 400 local residents, was the Hudson River Boot and Shoe Manufacturing Company, at the corner of North Cherry and Main streets. In 1860 businessman John O. Whitestone established the business and hired J.I. Vail to build the complex in 1870. In 1879, the buildings were struck by lightning and burned; they were immediately rebuilt.
Located on Nelson Road in Wappingers Falls sits the Monastery of St. Clare, an order of nuns founded in 1212 as the Second Order of the Franciscan family, also known as the Poor Clares. St. Clare was the first Franciscan woman and a staunch follower of St. Francis of Assisi. This is the third monastery the order has used since it arrived in New York in 1915.
Sitting on the south side of Salt Point Turnpike just east of the center of Clinton Corners, a hamlet in the Town of Clinton, a small U.S. Post Office conducts business from a building that has deep roots in the community. Built in 1848, it was originally one of 11 one-room, multiple-grade schoolhouses in the town. Through the years the grade levels taught there varied and average classroom capacity typically numbered 20 to 25.
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".
