“Beautifying that space, fixing that space, repairing that space, and honoring our veterans is incredibly important,” said Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Sunnyside), who allocated funds for the project. “It is a sacred place, that plaza. It should be resorted to its original and everlasting beauty.”The memorial — on Woodside Avenue, between 54th and 56th streets — sits inside the 1.71-acre Doughboy Park.
The full board is expected to vote on the proposal as soon as early next year. “Nothing is set in stone,” CB 2 Chairwoman Denise Keehan-Smith said at the board’s monthly meeting last week. “We’re considering all the opinions.”Local elected officials and advocacy group Transportation Alternatives have been pushing for safety upgrades along 43rd Avenue since April, when 32-year-old Gelasio Reyes was killed in a hit-and-run accident while cycling home from work.
“Northern Boulevard was her street,” state Assemblyman Jeffrion Aubry (D-Corona) said at the event on the Corona-East Elmhurst border. “So for us to commemorate her, to bring her name forward on this street is so very important.”Born in Harlem, Marshall moved to East Elmhurst when she married her husband, Donald. She became Queens’ first African-American borough president in 2002 and held the office through 2013.
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".
