This.  My roommates and I put the powder near and around any water pipes, nooks, and crannies.  Places where they might be hanging out but you won't be likely to breathe in by accident. Any food boxes in the cupboard we kept sealed within tupperware, and we washed dishes, dried them, and put them away immediately or else we found roaches eating and drinking off of them.  All of this kept them away pretty effectively.

Boric acid powder also works well against mice if you mix it with peanut butter and put it on a mouse trap.  Even if they escape the trap, they will become dessicated and you'll find a mummified mouse somewhere in a couple of days (no smell either).

Also, never live in Brooklyn if you can help it ;)
