Vince Lebon and his wife, Kat, moved to Brooklyn from Melbourne, Australia, last August. And like many in the market for a newly built rental — where decisions often come down to fairly minor things like a month of free rent or a location half a block closer to the subway — they spent the months leading up to their move dispassionately comparing floor plans, costs and transit options. But then Ms. Lebon showed her husband a listing for a two-bedroom at 325 Kent Avenue, in Williamsburg.
While the increase, from $2,400 in 2009 to $2,850 in 2016, broke down to a relatively modest 2 or 3 percent per year, Mr. de Blasio, who declined to be interviewed for this story, had spent the previous two years calling for — and getting — zero percent increases for the city’s rent-stabilized units.
“My mom was like, ‘You should definitely experience the city, be on your own,’” said Ms. Dimaano, now 21 and a senior. “I wasn’t going to say ‘no.’ If the opportunity arises to live in Manhattan, you take it.”Born and raised in Queens, Ms. Dimaano had long fantasized about moving to Manhattan, a once-common rite of passage for outer-borough natives. “I liked the idea that you could do different things every day, have a different adventure every day,” she said.
Just realized that what was One Last Shag in Bed-Stuy is now a bar called the Holler. Read about the not-so-recent change on @DNAinfoNY and @Gothamist. Momentary wave of sadness that neither the bar nor either of those news outlets exist anymore.
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".
