Using Ron's ZBW19 feed, and FlightAware, I put together a sort of quick reference Playbook/SOP for this sector covering scheduled traffic. I think I got most of the routes that would pass through this sector, but might have missed a few.

I'm not sure I understand your question ?

Liberty E is the sector prior to 134.000 for LGA/EWR/JFK departures via BAYYS/MERIT/GREKI.

LGA departures, 120.40 -> 126.800 -> 134.000

EWR departures, 119.20 -> 120.40 -> 126.80 -> 134.00

JFK departures, 135.90 -> 126.800 -> 134.00

Is that what you meant ?

Hey Jet,

listening last night I noticed that 135.9 was handing off to 120.85 and then to 125.575.

126.8 and 134.0 we're not even in the picture. this happened sometime after 10 p.m last night.

Nice playbook Jet  smiley

Also heard a couple of KTEB departures coming onto 134.0 this morning climbing to 17000, one flight (EJA346) going to Hyannis was handed off to 124.85 while the other (UJT515) going overseas was handed off to 126.225.

EJT346 flight plan:  BREZY V39 CMK BAYYS V229 SEALL V188 GON....
UJT515 flight plan:  BREZY V39 CMK MERIT HFD PUT J581....

Thanks. I haven't had a chance to look at the late/overnight configurations yet, that "playbook" just covers normal business hours.

Yeah TEB departures follow the same routes for the most part, but I only included scheduled traffic to keep things simple. I also noticed this sector handles a fair amount of higher VFR traffic as well.

I don't know if anyone is actually interested in stuff like this, I could do a few more sectors if people want to see them ? Not sure if my notes make sense, but I find having a quick reference "playbook" like this makes it easy to get sector situational awareness quickly and is helpful when following flights.

Personally, I think your Playbook is an excellent tool to have!  I'd be happy to help gather information on any sector you're interested in generating a Playbook for.

A quick note on 120.85...it turns out that late at night this freq covers a rather wide area.  I heard handoffs from 120.85 to ZNY 132.175, 125.325 and ZBW 125.575.  Thought you'd find that interesting...

I'm working on some others. I'll post them when I get some free time. Ultimately I'm trying to put together as many as I can. I'll start with ZBW and ZNY and see how it goes.

Sector combining on the overnight shift is common at all facilities. Overnight (after ~midnight or so depending on wx and traffic) N90 usually combines each of their 5 areas to 1 sector/freq per area. The controllers many times are simulcasting on multiple freqs, but the acft are all on 1 combined frequency). The 5 areas of N90:

JFK area (Appr/Dep) all combines to 125.7
LGA -> 120.8
EWR ->128.55 (or 120.15-I've heard both)
ISP -> 118.0
Liberty ->120.85

Sometimes they change, but these are generally accurate...but by listening to handoffs...you can tell pretty quickly on a nightly basis.
