The Greenport Theatre has weathered many sea changes during its 102-year run as the North Fork seaport’s “only show in town” — changes wrought by the transition from silent pictures to talkies, the destructive force of a hurricane and more recent innovations such as multiplexing and digital projection. But one thing has stayed the same. “We don’t have shows that run too late, so [patrons] don’t have to worry about missing the last ferry,” said theater manager and projectionist John McCabe.
Hempstead Village is known nowadays for its Central American restaurants. So it’s something of a surprise to find El Ajicito Peruvian Restaurant, nearly hidden away in a storefront on a quiet stretch of Front Street, across from the V&T supermarket. The dining room is a cheerful space, with Andean decorations on the walls and recorded salsa music playing as smartly dressed waitstaff ferry plates across tile floors. Corn is big in Peru — literally.
Now that he’s retired, sort of, Chuck Westfall is living the life he dreamed about as a kid growing up in Wantagh, sailing and catching dinner in the waters of nearby Great South Bay. But he’s not using a pole, line and lure. “I have no time to fish, I’m an oyster farmer,” Westfall said as he steered his 19-foot skiff away from the dock at Captree Boat Basin in Babylon.
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".
