Seymour Hionas, Real Estate

These model houses look like they've been here on Fifth & 60th a good while.  They whisper a realtor's lure of suburban escape, complete with in-ground pool & waiting school bus.  Maybe a move to Nassau, or Jersey?  Maybe across to Staten Island before the Verrazano?  They could just be symbols for a rowhouse, I suppose, but seem to suggest another way of life.  Certainly they're like nothing in the neighborhood.  Nor is that 60s ceramic family, all beaming & ready to re-locate. 
The office interior is pretty much the same vintage.  The elderly couple working inside look as if they've run the show for 50 years or more.
