Also known as Steel City, L-Town, Little Cleveland, or simply the ghetto. Incredibly well known for its large Hispanic population, crime rate, steel mills, and extremely poor inhabitants. Most people that live in Lorain want to get out, but very few do. People from Lorain are hardcore; we don't start things, we finish them. Hometown of Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison.

Can be used as an adjective to mean "ghetto".
Look at that guy, he's sooooo Lorain.

1. A slang term for anything that's similar to Lorain, Ohio (ghetto, gangsta, dirty, etc.).

2. An industrial slum city on Lake Erie in NE Ohio in the Cleveland area. Its nicknames include L-Town, Steel City, Lo-City, 440, and Puerto Ricohio. There's a very large steel mill located in Lorain, and Lorain has the highest Hispanic % of any city in Ohio (mostly Puerto Rican/Boricua). Lorain is infamous for its very high crime rate, gangs, poverty, pollution, decay/abandonment, 3rd world conditions, large Puerto Rican (and black) community, and industrial origins. The people who live here also have great pride for the city, despite how bad it is. We do have Lakeview Park, and the SW and NE sides are decent. Unlike most people on this site who say their city is ghetto (when its really safe and suburban), Lorain is actually a very gangsta/dangerous city. Even much worse than its cousin to the south, Elyria (Southside Elyria, Thug City is very ghetto though).
1. Cleveland is ghetto, dirty, and has giant steel mills, Lorain?.

2. Suburban Guy: "Where you from"
South Lorain Guy: "Lorain"
Suburban Guy: "Oh god, please don't kill me!"

A stupid city in Ohio, full of crime and diversity. It's pretty much the gayest city in the world.
