The neighborhood surrounding Cooper Park is one of Williamsburg’s last sleepy corners. Flanked by the industrial business zone on the east, and the long-vacant Greenpoint Hospital on the west, the few surrounding square blocks are dramatically set apart from the bustle closer to the Graham Avenue L train stop. The area is home to rows of single-family homes, a fluffy green park and the NYCHA Cooper Park Houses complex.
Erica Garner, whose father Eric became a national symbol of excessive police force after he died in a struggle with cops on Staten Island, died early Saturday, her family said. Garner, 27, suffered “major brain damage” after suffering a heart attack last weekend. She died at Woodhull Hospital, according to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who spoke outside the hospital Saturday morning.
A man was shot several times during a bar fight at Coney Island’s MCU Park early Saturday, police said. The suspect fired at his 36-year-old victim as they squabbled at 1:50 a.m. inside the Steeplechase Beer Garden, on the ground level of the stadium on Surf Avenue. Bullets hit the man in the torso and buttocks, and grazed his head, said police. When the wounded man was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, police discovered he was carrying a gun. He’ll be charged with weapons possession, cops said.
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".
