A puritan conservative who pretends that is a 'hipster'
I was a gentrifier in Williamsburg. Like the maligned hipsters, I used my parents’ savings to secure a place to live. I wanted grocery stores that carried organic products like Horizon milk for $6 per half-gallon, and overpriced but aesthetically satisfying coffee shops like El Beit. I needed expensive boutiques, otherwise I would have felt bad for having left Manhattan.

What people who have lived in a place for more than 5 years call people who have lived in a place for less than 5 years.
"This neighborhood used to be so real before all those gentrifiers moved in." (Generally said by someone who grew up in the suburbs, probably in a different state).
