Hi dudes,

I got an admission from Wayne State University, for pursuing my PhD studies. So, I'm moving to Detroit with my wife in about January 2009.
Due to my stipend, I can pay about 500~700$ per month. I'm looking for a safe place for living.
I must mention that I have never been in Us!!
I would be so grateful to hear your suggestions.

I'd suggest the west side. You can easily get a house or apt. in your price range in Dearborn. Not sure if you'd mind living amid a very large Arab Middle Eastern influence or not, but it's there with the restaurants, bakeries, etc. It's a decidely Muslim area as far as the Arab residents though there are some Christian Arabs there. Not a bunch though. East Dearborn is mostly Arab, West Dearborn is mostly Eurpean-American. I'd stick with the area west of the Southfield freeway. It's more desirable in my opinion no matter what your ethnic background or preferences are. If you're Israeli/Jewish, you probably won't find many compatriots in Dearborn. Whether that's a problem for you or not, I don't know.

If you don't want the Middle Eastern influence so much, you could try Allen Park or Livonia. Both are convenient to Wayne State with Allen Park being a little more convenient. North Westland is OK, but there are so many apartments, I don't really care for it.

Hamtramck also has a strong middle-eastern area and is closer to Wayne State. There are also lots of safe neighborhoods around Wayne State.

Dearborn sounds like it would be perfect for you, if you like to be around other middle eastern people. Dearborn is a nice west suburb of Detroit, and has a pretty good commute to Wayne State. My other suggestion would be Hamtramck, closer to Wayne State, also a high Middle Eastern population, and is a city with many rentals.
