The South Ferry station that was battered and flooded during Superstorm Sandy is days away from its grand reopening, a source familiar with the work told the Daily News. The No. 1 train is slated to roll through the new South Ferry station on Tuesday, though MTA officials have said it could open as late as the end of the month. The original $545 million station opened in 2009 as a replacement for the old station.
Desperate straphangers scurried through subway tunnels like rats to get out of a stopped train in Brooklyn, the MTA confirmed Friday. More than two dozen people risked their lives walking through a dark, grimy tunnel in search of a way out Wednesday afternoon, according to a source familiar with the escape. The riders were stuck on a packed No. 3 train for less than 10 minutes when they decided to make a break for it, around 4:45 p.m., MTA officials said.
A switch problem at the Lexington Ave.-59th St. station delayed rush-hour service. R trains were rerouted over the Q line from 57th St. to Lexington Ave.-63rd St. stations, then to the F line to Roosevelt Ave. about 6:30 a.m. The scramble delayed F, Q and R trains. A busted switch at the Jamaica train yard also delayed Metropolitan Ave.-bound M trains around 7 a.m. Tags: mta Send a Letter to the Editor Join the Conversation: facebook Tweet
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
