NEW YORK — A crush of curious tourists and New Yorkers were treated to an unusual scene in Times Square on Wednesday: a retro Miami Beach-inspired fashion show that brought Little Havana to Manhattan.
The surreal setting of beach umbrellas, cabanas and fan palms surrounded by jumbo screen ads for Coca-Cola, Hyundai and a giant news feed from CNN was a prelude to the second season of Starz’s “Magic City” TV series, which begins Friday. The fictional drama series takes place in Miami’s top resort hotel, the Miramar Playa, where mobsters, CIA and FBI agents and entertainers like Frank Sinatra rub elbows.
