The East Village extends from East Houston Street to 14th Street, between Fourth Avenue and Lafayette Street and the East River. Home to squatters, the New York punk scene, hippies and bikers for decades, the East Village has boomed in recent years into a community alive with young professionals and students from all over the world mingling with a diverse range of residents. The available housing consists mainly of walk-up buildings, many of which are now refurbished, and several new residential buildings, including the first to be pre-wired for Internet access (the Info Building at 3rd Street and Avenue A in 1996). The East Village has become home to trendy shops, art galleries, bars and every type of restaurant imaginable. There are also several movie theaters within walking distance including the newly renovated Sunshine Theater on Houston Street.
