NYC Apartment Bad Wiring, originally uploaded by baratunde.

Strange smell and a failing air conditioner led to this discovery.


What are the best options for an NYC apartment-dweller?
Notify super?
Write management?

Are there independent things I can do to protect myself and my property? Any super high quality powerstrips with built-in electrical fire prevention I can install? I really don't want to be killed by bad wiring. I at least want to visit Cuba first.
