Safe area for a student to live in Savannah's downtown historic district?

I'll be moving to Savannah this fall to attend SCAD. I'm overwhelmed with the online information regarding the city's safety and it's dispersed pockets of crime. I'm aware that the city has a higher crime rate and that you just need to use common sense (like any other city), but it would be nice to know if there are safer areas (i.e. stay north of Forsyth Park?...within the boundaries of MLK & Broad st?). I'm looking for apartments online and am not at all familiar with the area. I'll also need a place to park my car.
Also, what's the best resource for finding a roommate? I'm hoping to find another graduate student to live with. I've been looking on Craigslist, but the listings are sparse.
