They were ready to brrr-ing in the New Year. More than 1 million tourists, revelers and outright masochists thumbed their noses at the frigid weather Sunday night and crammed into Times Square to mark the start of 2018. With temperatures hovering in the low teens, the celebration was expected to be one of the coldest on record. 2017 was record-low for homicides in New York City“This is my first time doing New Year’s Eve in Times Square and it’s really not that cold,” she said coolly.
Crowds flocked to St. Patrick’s in Midtown on Sunday night for a seasonal experience like no other: Christmas Eve at the city’s storied cathedral. Lines formed outside the massive stone structure hours ahead of Midnight Mass, where tourists and the faithful gaped at the surrounding Christmas lights. “This church is so beautiful! I wish we could go inside! New York is absolutely the best place to be on Christmas. It’s so safe and serene, and there’s a happy spirit here,” Marie Watson said.
A fight in a downtown subway station, just feet below a busy and tourist-heavy stretch of Broadway, ended with two men slashed and their attacker on the run Sunday night, cops said. Police said the fight broke out around 5:20 p.m. on the uptown Nos. 4 and 5 platform at the Fulton St. station in lower Manhattan. The victims, who went to Bellevue Hospital, weren’t initially cooperating with investigators, cops said.
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".
