look up any word, like muddin:
 
1.
A process by which some Midwestern cities, formerly sleepy towns, gain urbanization and become more like Chicago, Illinois.

Many long-time natives of these cities, and furthermore, those living in the same area but outside these cities, despise the process.
I'm sick of it... Indianapolis is getting chicagoized. A new downtown, mid-rise condo towers, and a gentrified hippie village... What's next, a 20 mile bike path? Oh, wait.
