The process by which an established, traditionally Jewish neighborhood changes demographically due to an influx of non-Jewish young urban hipsters.
A classic example of gentilification is the displacement of Hasidic Jewish residents and/or cultural influence from the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn as a wave of young edgy new residents and visitors has taken hold.
