On the same day Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation imposing steep fines on many Airbnb hosts in New York City, the San Francisco-based corporation said it would file suit that same day against Mayor Bill de Blasio, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the city of New York in their 'official capacity as enforcement agents.'
It's been long in coming, but at least one component of Gateway, the $23 billion plan to steel the Northeast Corridor's arthritic spine, appears to be happening. On Thursday afternoon, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, one of the several bureaucracies charged with repairing the long-deteriorating rail connection between the two states, announced "the largest commitment to Gateway to date."
Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn't often concern himself with the goings-on at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey-the bi-state authority controlled by Governors Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie. But on Thursday afternoon, he plans to make an exception on behalf of improving the lot of the region's airport workers.
With just 10 days left before he has to sign, or veto, a bill that would levy steep fines on some Airbnb users, the San Francisco-based company with the $30 billion valuation said Cuomo faces a stark choice between the 'people' and the 'powerful,' the future and the past.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer has a litmus test for the next president's transportation secretary. Schumer on Friday said he will not approve a nomination unless the would-be official fervently supports building a new rail tunnel between New Jersey and Manhattan, part of a project known as Gateway.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx on Friday declined to completely rule out a federal takeover of NJ Transit. During a press conference at Penn Station in Manhattan regarding a new cross-Hudson rail tunnel, a reporter asked Foxx if there was any precedent for a U.S.
Tom Cochran didn't want to start Thursday event on infrastructure without addressing the "elephant in the room." Try as he might, the man who runs the U.S. Conference of Mayors could not get a Trump surrogate - any Trump surrogate - to participate in his infrastructure event, one he had billed as a forum with the "presidential campaigns."
Driving in New York City may be about to get less harrowing. Soon, car owners who use any of the MTA's nine bridges and tunnels will no longer have to stop at toll booths, or even pause momentarily at E-ZPass gates.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo doesn't see the point of finding a new CEO for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, absent legislation that would enshrine into law several reforms to the way the bi-state agency does business.
The Regional Plan Association - one of New York City's more august civic organizations - took issue on Monday with Gov. Andrew Cuomo's ambitions for Penn Station and the James A. Farley Post Office Building across the street. On Tuesday, that organization's incoming chairman took issue with the Regional Plan Association's position.
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
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".
