Our building did, but it was a NYCHA project building (Marble Hill Houses) so it was newer than most Bronx apartment buildings. IT was 14 stories tall, had two elevators, and my brother and I did have elevator races. Also, when I was about 6 or 7 there was a calypso song out (remember the calypso craze of the late '50s) called "Push de Button," and I used to sing it while beating out a rhythm on the elevator button. My mother warned me that I would break the button!
