"Brooklynification” is a term that means an area is being gentrified and is suddenly hip and multi-cultured, like the borough of Brooklyn since the 1990s. “Burlington is currently in the throes of Brooklynification, as that borough has reached terminal hipster velocity and must now extend, tentacle-like, to even tiny burgs like our own” was cited in print in 2006. “The Brooklynification of North Carolina—Can it be stopped?” was a headline in November 2013.
A similar term is “Manhattanization.”

This is supposedly a music blog, but I just got back from the Walkmen show and I want to talk about FASHIN!
First of all, I have noticed a new breed of hipster lately. Burlington is currently in the throes of Brooklynification, as that borough has reached terminal hipster velocity and must now extend, tentacle-like, to even tiny burgs like our own.

Queens: it’s just like Brooklyn! Or so argues the Village Voice food writers, with the example of Salt & Fat, a new Sunnyside restaurant with a North Brooklyn-y name focusing on “globally influenced New American small plates.”

Ah yes, the vile “ism” and “tion”: Sometimes we make them up—Brooklynification, Disneyfication, blogism—but many versions of these are well established and dictionary-approved.

GravyOn occasion, we’ve noted in this space that Durham, NC has become the Brooklyn of the South (in a good way even, once, if memory serves).
