Safety deposit openings
New York is unusual in that a notary is required to witness a bank
opening a safety deposit box. The notary is not required to record the
contents of the safety deposit box in a journal.
Below is the official text:

If a rental fee of a safety deposit box is not paid, or after the
termination of the lease for such box, and after 30 days of giving proper
notice to the lessee, the lessor ( bank ), may, in the presence of a
notary public, open the safe deposit box, remove the inventory of the
contents.  The notary public shall then file with the lessor a certificate
under seal which states the date of the opening of the safe deposit box,
the name of the lessee, and a list of the contents. Within 10 days of the
opening of the safe deposit box, a copy of this certificate must be
mailed to the lessee at his last known postal address.
