. What is the orange loop with the yellow "Y" on it (top of last pic)? Current sensor? Neckstrap?

That is the High Current probe

Nice! (What does it do)?

Measures up to 1 K Amps of power (AC or DC) through the clamp.
Frequency of (AC) current. 
Meter can be detached and read from up to 10 meters away
etc
Tsk, tsk. You should know better! It measures up to 1 kA of current. If that's inside your house, then you've can measure up to 110 kW of power. When you climb the pole and get to the other side of the pig, you've got several megawatts to play with :-)

Yeah, I am good at confusing names and designations...."I" knew what I meant, but in  writing it down here, I should have been more careful with my wording.

If I wanted to risk arrest or being totally fried, I could try a substation....

But yes, there is a transformer on the pole outside my house, which I would NEVER climb up to test (the combination of the fear of electrical shock and my being very uncomfortable with heights helps here).

Now you can go climb a utility pole and play with the wires.

I was thinking about the line coming into the apt. I could check it at the main box....
There would be no sense of adventure in that. You need to surf the subways and clamp down on the third rail or overhead to see what kind of juice is going through there. Sign says DANGER 600 volts though.
