More Info:
This bike was messengered on in NYC for many years. I was hit by a car on it a year ago and the frame was professionally reset. I'd like to strip it clean and paint it or seal it so I don't have to worry about pitting (the rust isn't too bad yet). But in an NYC apartment I'm not sure the best place to do this.

Hahah! Frankenbike is right. This was the state of many of our messenger bikes in Philly back in '90's track bike resurgence. You should consider a repaint and refurbishment! Here:

Lots of newspaper + ventilation + frame saver is what I'd shoot for. And maybe stripping down with airplace stripper and steel wool and then painting with many thin layers
