How much notice does an NYC landlord have to give before raising rent?

Our landlord contacted our downstairs neighbors this afternoon about raising their rent starting June 1. He then texted me and asked if he could "meet with us tomorrow." I assume he's going to tell us the same thing -- that he wants to raise our rent and have us sign a new lease.
Here are the salient facts:
* We are not in a rent controlled or rent stabilized apartment.
* The term of our original lease ended and we are currently living here on a month to month basis.
So my question is basically is there a legal expectation that he give me 30 or 60 days notice before raising our rent?
