Hey, it's life in the Big Apple, what do you expect?
Luckily, our landlord has an extermintor come in twice a month. He arrives every other Saturday at about 7:50 and shouts "'terminator" down the hall. We always try to be ready when he gets here -- oven and refrigerator pulled away from the wall, cabinets emptied.
He called it a "water bug," which from what we can gather from our reading, is a nice name for the American cockroach (picture from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's web site.)
He used some "Suspend," which looks like pretty nasty stuff if you are a bug of any sort.
