A number of readers in the last 20 minutes have been indicating that there has been an outage with Verizon in the New York area. Service appears to be recovering, and some internet health monitoring sites are showing latency entering and exiting the Verizon hub in Boston.

Nanog are reporting a few people experiencing connectivity issues in the NY US area.

If you have any information on what happened, let us know and we'll update this diary with the news.

Update: Verizon have indicated via Twitter that:

"a router responsible for peering in the Northeast failed. It was reset and traffic should be coming back."

Update 2:

Verizon have now posted a blog detailing the event in addition to their continuing updates on Twitter
