Miami Pop-Up Pool in Union Square Delights, Baffles New Yorkers

The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau brought a taste of the Magic City (or, at least, a taste of the prevailing Magic City stereotype) to the Big Apple yesterday afternoon, setting up a temporary swimming pool in the middle of New York City's Union Square.

The reactions were mixed.

Some New Yorkers seemed grateful to have a few easy-on-the-eyes beach babes to ogle as they made their way to Starbucks or Pinkberry or whatever the hell chain is trendy in New York these days. Others felt the ban on actual swimming was a bit harsh: "It's just cruel." (Organizers, to be fair, say the city wouldn't let them let others swim in the pool).

See photos and some visitors' reactions after the jump.

Dancing With the Stars' pro dance partner Karina Smirnoff is all over Miami lately. First, she walks the runway at Fashion Week Swim, and now she's headlining this publicity fest.
