In the early part of the 20th century, residents in Charlotte’s neighborhoods relied on the streetcar lines in order to commute into Uptown. The system of streetcars around town spurred development and made the homes along the streets where the trolleys ran the most desirable for their convenience. One of those streets was 7th, where a streetcar line ran out of Uptown, up Elizabeth Avenue, down Hawthorne Lane, and up 7th Street, ending at Clarice Avenue.
Tucked among Uptown’s sky-rises and cultural centers, you’ll find The Green, a 1.5-acre park adjacent to St. Peter’s Catholic Church. Filled with fountains and grassy areas, The Green is a favorite spot for Uptown workers on their lunch breaks and those just looking for a serene spot away from the city’s bustle. Traveling public sculptures are often showcased in the garden, including an exhibition by famed French artist Niki de Saint Phalle that brought five large sculptures there in 2011.
Anyone who has spent a sunny afternoon at the U.S. National Whitewater Center can appreciate its appeal. Just outside of town and along the Catawba River, the center features 1,100 acres designed for playing and relaxing. From rafting on the world’s largest man-made whitewater river to zip-lining over said river, there’s plenty to keep guests entertained. But hiking and crossing the river in this area weren’t always for recreational purposes.
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".
