One of the few New York City islands not connected by bridge, Governors Island National Monument offers a 172-acre playground of open space, art exhibits, historical tours, and impressive skyline views rivaling any panoramic rooftop bar. To access the island, you can hop on the Governors Island ferry ($2 roundtrip, $20 season pass) departing from Brooklyn Bridge Park or Battery Park or take the NYC Ferry ($2.75, one-way) from various ports on the East River.
Chances are your first and only introduction to Red Hook was to furnish your apartment at IKEA. And while cheap home goods may be enough of a reason to bring you back to this South Brooklyn neighborhood (which is technically a peninsula between Buttermilk Channel, Gowanus Bay, and the Gowanus Canal) thereâ€™s so much more to do -- and more importantly, to eat -- making it perfect for a summer weekend.
With its opulent buildings, luxury shopping avenues, and mile of world-class museums, the Upper East Side may be New York City's most polished neighborhood. And to be sure, the restaurants here are just as upscale — and you an easily shell out hundreds on a tasting menu at Kappo Masa ($250 for nine courses) or Daniel ($142 for four courses).
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".
