New York Net maintains a mailing list for important announcements. The following is the description of the list, from the mailing list itself:
This moderated list is for announcements from New York Network regarding maintenance activites, scheduled outages/upgrades, etc. Announcements from other providers which affect New York Network may also be found in the nynet-status list. It is expected that at least one person per customer site will be subscribed to the nynet-announce list in order to be aware of maintenance activity that would affect them. Subscribing additional people from your site is encouraged.
