If you have anything more than "east coast core internet router", maybe
somebody can figure it out.

Something like "traceroutes from a.example.com to b.foobar.com stop at
casters-up.NYC.tier1.net" would be helpful.

Note that for a noticable outage, the problem is usually *not* a dead router,
but backhoe fade (unusual for late October, as backhoe mating season is in
springtime, and all the backhoes compete to demonstrate their digging prowess),
or a software config or routing change gone bad, causing a BGP wedgie (yes,
that's what it's called) requiring kick-starting a significant chunk of the
network to get things fixed (Level3 had an incident back on 10/21 where a
config change on an edge router in Chicago went bad, causing an AS7007-style
routing burp).
