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?"
Clevelander: "Ah Lorain, Im from C-Town"
Lorainite: "Ah Cleveland, wanna go rob and kill somebody?"
(A ghetto friendship begins)
