Deep Space 大厦

October 09, 2018

I've been watching Deep Space 9 and can't help but think they should really rename it "Deep Space Condominium". Any group living situation will be at least a little bit like DS9 (a show about life on a space station), but it's especially relevant to my building, in Oakland Chinatown:

  • Both have understaffed maintenance teams working through huge deferred maintenance backlogs, and residents who dislike waiting their turn
  • Both feature several cultures living in close proximity who think each others' food is gross and generally don't trust each other
  • Both have tons of rumors and gossip
  • Life at both has had its ups and downs, but the new administrations in both places are headed in the right direction

(The title of this post comes from the name of my building, 中山大厦)
