“Land is the only thing in the world that amounts to anything,” so claimed George O’Hara, father of Gone with the Wind’s arresting anti-heroine. “‘Tis the only thing worth working for, worth fighting for.”And indeed – while this may not be the Civil War-strewn South – we can only imagine the bitter battle that will ensue over this seriously prime plot. Perhaps the swinging sixties house isn’t all your life-on-the-open-range dreams are made of, but an acre in the heart of Hampstead Village?
West Hampstead grew up as a small village, surrounded by farmland. With the arrival of the railway in the late 19th century, much of the farmland was converted into housing, and the name was changed from West End to West Hampstead – to avoid confusion with the area of central London known as the West End. The village feel is still very much a part of modern West Hampstead life; indeed, one of the big draws for local residents is the sense of community.
The neat square of land between Regent Street, Oxford Street, Park Lane and Piccadilly epitomises the very best of London living. As the Monopoly board suggests, Mayfair has it all: beautiful period architecture, illustrious but peaceful squares, heaps of history, and it borders some of the very best parkland. Architectural highlights Broad Georgian thoroughfares dominated by three large squares: Grosvenor, Hanover and Berkeley.
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".
