MORRISANIA - The architects of a Morrisania apartment building are encouraging tenants to take steps toward healthy living.

The building, located at 770 East 166th St., was constructed with exercise in mind. Music plays in the stairwells, which are covered in artwork, to make climbing more appealing than taking the elevator. To that end, the elevator is purposely slower than usual.

The complex also features an indoor and outdoor gym.

Doctors at Mount Sinai are researching the building's effect on residents' health, and test results should be expected in September.
