The Curious George store in Harvard Square—the only one of its kind in the world—is staying in the area under what’s apparently a long-term lease with its landlord. Recall that the retail outpost appeared doomed under redevelopment plans for its building and others at John F. Kennedy and Brattle streets smack-dab in the middle of Harvard Square. Those plans include a new four-story building at the existing 9-11 John F. Kennedy Street and renovations to 1-7 JFK and 18-24 Brattle.
Median one-bedroom apartment rents in Mattapan and West Roxbury increased 12% and 8% respectively in the fall compared with the summer, more than in any other Boston neighborhoods, according to an analysis from real estate listings site Zumper. The analysis tracked available and vacant apartments, so it is a pretty good indicator of where one-bedroom rents stand. Meanwhile, the West End saw the biggest decline—6%—during the past few months.
A 14-story coliving building proposed for the South End’s Ink Block complex would create what one of its developers calls a “millennial resort” complete with micro-apartments and a suite of services that includes organized social activities. National Development, the Ink Block’s Newton-based developer, and Ollie, a New York concern that operates coliving buildings elsewhere in the U.S., expect many of the apartments at the 245-unit building to be smaller than 400 square feet.
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".
