A construction worker fell to his death early Thursday at a troubled work site in lower Manhattan, officials said. The worker plummeted at 161 Maiden Lane near South St. at about 9:15 a.m., FDNY officials said. The building being developed is a 670-foot condo tower known as 1 Seaport. On Wednesday, city buildings inspectors issued a partial stop work order due to the unsafe operation of a crane that was still in effect when Thursday's accident occurred.
An off-duty NYPD sergeant once honored for bravery was arrested early Thursday for threatening a cyclist with a gun and shoving him in Queens, police said. Bradley Beamer got into an argument with the biker at Queens Plaza North and 24th St. in Long Island City about 3 a.m., the day after Beamer’s 40th birthday. The 12-year veteran pulled his gun and waved it in the cyclist’s face, according to cops. He then pushed the victim so hard he knocked him off his bike, police said.
A man clad in body armor sparked panic in Flatiron District Japanese restaurant when he brandished a gun — and claimed to be a cop as he was arrested, officials said Thursday.

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".
