The ambitious renovation project at LaGuardia Airport promises to bring the dilapidated travel hub into the 21st century over the next five years. One key part of that transformation is a planned AirTrain that will connect the airport’s terminals to the 7 subway line and the Long Island Rail Road via the Willets Point station in Queens. On Thursday, the Port Authority board took another step toward its construction, unanimously signing off on $55 million in additional funding.
In 2015, weekday ridership on the New York City subway was at its highest since 1948. Since then, the number of straphangers passing through the turnstiles has slowly declined. In 2016, the system saw its first annual drop in ridership since 2009, and new data released by the MTA shows that the downward trend isn’t stopping. The average weekday ridership on the subway this past September was 7.7 million, according to numbers presented at a MTA Board meeting on Wednesday.
Ah, Williamsburg—the Brooklyn neighborhood that has become the butt of hipster jokes in New York and beyond. It’s a delightful place that has evolved immensely over the past decade, and that change isn’t expected to slow down any time soon. As rent prices soar in the area, New Yorkers with more modest incomes can find solace in a new housing lottery that’s opened up on one of the hottest blocks in the neighborhood.
@danqdao This omits newsletters (hard to track externally). But it also points out why building a brand with an engaged, devoted audience is more important than either. Can never invest all your eggs into a single traffic basket. Also, let's not say that SEO hits are never cheap.
@edelahanty@realpmurray@joelmeares For the record, dear friends, Joel's dinner was at a very reasonable establishment and it was a delightful time. I even had the extra cash to buy him bath bombs from Lush. This is mostly in reference to a certain sort of Millennial downtown crowd that I've come to detest.

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".
