Staten Island seems like a world away for many New Yorkers. And yet, there it is, a not-so-long ferry, drive or express bus ride away. This week's Take It Or Leave It selection is a short walk from the ferry terminal in St. George. The two-bedroom apartment is in the top floor of a Victorian house, and has views of the harbor. Despite an odd layout, there's a lot of charm here.
Thanksgiving is about many things: family, friendship and coming together to give thanks and be grateful for what you have. But it’s also about preparing and eating food; thoughtfully planning and sharing the recipes you grew up eating with others. This Thanksgiving we wanted to share some out-of-the-box recipes from chefs cooking in Brooklyn today. They aren’t what you’d see in a traditional Turkey Day spread, but they are as authentic as authentic gets for the chefs who created them.
Hudson Heights is a laid-back subsection of Washington Heights just south of Fort Tryon Park, made up mostly of older apartment buildings. This one-bedroom apartment is on the top floor of a prewar elevator building with a live-in super and a laundry room. The apartment is somewhat spacious at 760-square-feet, and includes charming details like a built-in bookcase and arched entryways.
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".
