The Art Deco-style General Laundry Cleaners building near the Lafitte Greenway in Treme has been nominated for a historic landmark status, the Mid-City Messenger reports. The early 20th century building with a colorfully ornate facade at 2525 Lafitte Ave. was spared demolition in 2014 after the building's industrial neighbor, Southern Recycling, asked to knock it down for an expansion. The building has been vacant and shows cracks and other signs of blight.
A developer is proposing a $5 million, four-story hotel in Central City targeting young travelers concerned about their environmental impact. The New Orleans Green Hotel would be constructed at 1500 Robert C. Blakes Sr. Drive -- on a section of Carondelet Street that was renamed two years ago -- at the intersection with Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
The closely watched plan to renovate the World Trade Center building into a Four Seasons hotel and condos again inched closer to reality this week when developers filed for building permits on the estimated $360 million project. Last month, developers Carpenter & Co. and Woodward Interests submitted to the city detailed renderings of the renovation, giving the most detailed picture yet of how the 1960s vacant office tower on the riverfront could be transformed.
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".
