What is a "New York Minute"?


I often hear people say things like, "I'd cut them off in a New York Minute!" It prompted me to wonder what, in fact, is a "New York Minute"? What makes a New York Minute different than a reagular minute?

    Why have I been hearing it since the late fifties in Florida? Originality is the art of forgetting where you heard it first.

    I think you are probably right Mike, I landed in New York in 1979 and put my bad down to make a phone call. Someone snatched my bag. He didn't get far, I must add. As I am from East London, home of all original gangsters : )
