A few of my co-workers from India live in Faxon Commons Apartments in Quincy, riding the red line to downtown to work. You may check that out.

Hi Sudheer! Have you looked in Malden Center / Malden Square? There's a big Indian community.

Malden is on the MBTA subway line (Orange) and the commuter rail (Haverhill/Reading line). Malden Center apartments are 1- to 5-minute walks from the train station. They all have parking, too. Commuting to Downtown Crossing in Boston, for example, takes about 20 minutes.

Be aware, there are a lot of brand new apartments in Malden, and those are NOT the ones with Indian communities. Indian families mostly live in Pleasant Plaza (best-managed), Malden Towers (has a good private garden and a tennis court) and Malden Towers (apx. 20 stories, so good views). I think "Gateway Apts" also has many Indian residents. There are lots and lots of Indian families and some singles living in Malden Center high-rise apartments. My family lives in one of these. I love my many Indian neighbors. There are 2 Indian grocery stores and several Indian-owned small businesses, like the convenience, package, and cellphone repair shops.

Your rental budget is a bit low, though. Apartments here are about $1900/1-bed. Sometimes you can get a deal if you move in mid-winter when it's harder for the building managers to rent out vacant units. However, there are other apartments you can find in Malden that are in your budget, and I'm sure you would still be able to find the local Indian community. People are always taking walks in the evening and sitting at the park/playground. Good luck!

West Natick, can walk to the West Natick commuter rail that goes to South Station. Lots of Indian families in this area.

I'm white, but you won't find an Indian community but you'll find like 10 - 15% of all communities in Metro West

Curious, why is it important to be in a "Indian community"? Are you just here temporary? There appears there are lots of south Asians about, isn't it possible to just social network and live wherever? It's such a melting pot in the USA and desegregation is de rigueur these days.

Exactly, my thought too.
If you want to enjoy all that America offers, mix with other communities. It will be a great learning experience.
