Garden City does lack severely in nice apartments. The ones they do have are smaller, sort of not so nice buildings, mainly on Pardo Street and on Krauter Avenue surrounding Ford Road. Some are fairly nice, but the rest are eh. The housing stock in GC is very nice though. Westland on the other hand is apartment heaven, and surrounds Garden City on 2 1/2 sides.

I think of some areas of south and eastern Dearborn to be kind of shady. Especially in terms of apartment living. They do have nice parks, but Garden City also has a very large park, Garden City Park at Cherry Hill and Merriman, and they have pretty good services for a town of 30,000 (aside from the library).

Check out the apts. at Outer Drive and Monroe. They're on the older side, but it's a good area and about 5 minutes or less from Oakwood....

That might be the area I was thinking of in my earlier post. I like the older buildings, I hate those big apartment "communities" with a bunch of ugly buildings that all look the same.

I was referring to a very specific type of bland suburban apartment complex that I haven't seen in Dearborn. There are a lot of them in Westland and downriver. Some people like them, but I can't stand them.

Definitely agree with that. If I was going to rent, I'd look for a flat.

Dearborn IS safe. Nearly all of it.

I can't speak on the prices though, as the housing stock is very nice, and as strange as it seems, being right next to Detroit hasn't given it as bad of a stigma as other cities bordering Detroit, such as Redford and Warren.

I would say border areas of Dearborn are comparable Redford or Warren but don't get the bad rap. Personally I think the border areas in Redford are fairly nice, diverse even, and I don't think they are unsafe.

I will be starting clinical rotations from Feb at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn. I am looking for a female roommate.
I am a 21yr old single female. No pets, non-smoker.
Generally, what is the price range for renting a 2bdrm apt around oakwood area?
Thanks!

Try Wyandotte and Livonia. Much of Dearborn is pretty nice. Taylor is not awful (especially if you are not worried about schools). A place along heritage park would be kind of neat. Southgate is pretty nice.

Some parts of Dearborn are bad. as are some parts of Wyandotte (and probably almost every other community).
Garden City is ok. It is a bit run down and some parts are sort of scary appearing, other parts are pretty nice.
