A slang term for Lorain, Ohio. A city on Lake Erie just west of Cleveland.

Lorain is an old, urban industrial city. The city reached its peak population in the 70s at roughly 90,000 and has been losing population ever since. It has the highest Hispanic percentage of any city in Ohio and is the largest Hispanic community in Ohio outside of Clevelands near Westside, South Lorain is majority Puerto Rican. Lorain is approaching 50% minority. The crime and murder rate in the city averages about 2-3 times higher than the US average. There's around 25 street gangs with an estimated 2,200 gang members citywide. Over 2/3 of the city is considered "tha hood", and around 1/4 of the population is in poverty. The only attraction to outsiders is Lakeview Park. Strangely people have pride for the city despite how crappy it is.
Welcome to L Town where people from here love to say how crappy the city is and how much they hate it, but if anyone from outside the city says 1 disrespectful word about Lorain they'll be found tied to cinder blocks at the bottom of the Black River.

Lorain, Ohio.

An industrial slum city on Lake Erie in NE Ohio in the Cleveland area. Known for its Steel Mills, very high crime and poverty rate, gangs, decay/abandonment, and largest Hispanic % in Ohio (mostly Puerto Rican/Boricua). Unlike most people on this site who say their city is ghetto (when its really safe and suburban) to sound cool, Lorain actually is a very gangsta/ghetto city.

Mostly used by Ohioans, or people who know about Lorain.
Clevelander: "Where you from?"
Lorainite: "L-Town"
Clevelander: "Ah Lorain, Im from C-Town"
Lorainite: "Ah Cleveland, wanna go rob and kill somebody?"
Clevelander: "Definitely"

The place where everyone else thinks the ganstas live. All of the above definitions are fake ganstas from fake ltowns. If you've ever been to the 'Streets of Ltown' you'd know the real shit that goes down there.
You ever been to the streets of Ltown? All I heard was AK-47 fire!
