There are no requirements for giving notice, unless as stated it is Rent Stabilized. Your lease expiration date is your notice. But obviously it behooves the landlord to give their tenants to avoid a "No Time" stand off.
If you do feel you need to move, do not let it get to the point of the landlord needing to take you to court, because that record will stay in your profile for every future landlord to see, even though you have the right for an additional six months, it shows you as "uncooperative" and ignoring the terms of your lease by expecting to live beyond it. A lease is for the time limit specified, just as a car lease, or a hotel room booking and you cannot expect an automatic renewal at your desire.
If you are rent stabilized call The Department of Community Renewal (DHCR) the State agency that governs Rent Stabilized apartments.
