NY CPLR § 7512 (2012) What's This?
    §  7512.  Death  or  incompetency of a party. Where a party dies after
  making a written agreement to submit a controversy to  arbitration,  the
  proceedings  may  be begun or continued upon the application of, or upon
  notice to, his executor or administrator or, where it  relates  to  real
  property,  his  distributee or devisee who has succeeded to his interest
  in the real property. Where a committee of the property or of the person
  of a party to such an agreement is appointed,  the  proceedings  may  be
  continued upon the application of, or notice to, the committee. Upon the
  death  or  incompetency of a party, the court may extend the time within
  which an application to confirm, vacate or modify the award or  to  stay
  arbitration  must  be  made.  Where  a party has died since an award was
  delivered, the proceedings thereupon are the same as where a party  dies
  after a verdict.
