I am currently temporarily residing out of the state of New York, but I need to give my subtenant in NYC a move-out notice. In this day and age, would an email count or a written and signed letter have to be sent out the old fashioned way?

Dear Astoria Tenant:
No. The thirty day notice is a statutory notice and the service of the notice is a necessary element of proof.
In state or out of state, a lawyer should prepare the notice. A process server should serve the notice.
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
