EAST HARLEM — A Harlem district leader accused of violating state election law for living outside his district says it's nobody's business where he sleeps at night. Keith Lilly, a longtime political ally of Councilman Bill Perkins, who represents part of the 68th Assembly District was accused in a complaint filed with the city Board of Elections Tuesday of living on the west side of Manhattan. He's currently running a reelection campaign, but the candidate said his residency is a private matter.
HARLEM — Politicians from across the city came out in full force Monday to support a suburban senator that they turned their backs on during last year’s election. At a rally held in front of a statue of Harriet Tubman on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, more than a dozen elected officials voiced their support for state Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins.
EAST HARLEM — Nearly a year and a half after a massive fire shut down the Metro-North and stranded commuters, the garden shop where the fire began is still storing "hazardous, flammable and explosive materials" under the Park Avenue viaduct, according to a lawsuit filed by Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court. Now the commuter railway wants to boot the nursery from its Park Avenue home, according to the suit filed on behalf of the transit agency.
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".
