It’s been nicknamed the doughnut hole – one of the last remaining pieces of undeveloped Center City, where elevated railroad tracks enclose vacant factories and used car lots. Callowhill, or Chinatown North, or Spring Arts, is a post-industrial stretch that’s changing quickly, but competing visions are vying to determine what the neighborhood becomes.
Spend two months looking for an affordable apartment in Center City and you’ll learn a lot about the often unseemly interaction between humanity and real estate. Hallway carpets coated in dog hair, fire escapes advertised as “Juliet balconies,” people thrusting checks at a landlord before even viewing the apartment that you’re patiently waiting in line to check out. As you move a stranger’s dirty laundry out of the way to scope out closet space, you realize you’re far tidier than you thought.
The second and third floor windows of the Victorian-era Tacony Music Hall are blacked out or blocked from view by tightly drawn white curtains. On a walk around the block Wednesday afternoon, five people were asked about the club upstairs, and each answered with confusion or a blank stare. No one seemed to know anything about the “sex-positive club.”The Club, called Philly Music Hall, has been holding events, mostly at night, for nine weeks, mostly unnoticed.
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".
