New York Minute (referred to as New York Minute 1 from version 1.2.0 to 1.4.0) is a race course in Mario Kart Tour. It is named after and inspired by New York City set in nighttime, and makes its debut in the city's namesake tour and the first tour overall, the New York Tour. The course also appears as New York Minute R (reverse), New York Minute T (with ramps), and New York Minute R/T (reverse and with ramps). The name of the track comes from an American expression used to designate very short intervals of time. The course is a favorite by Pauline. Like the similarly inspired New Donk City from Super Mario Odyssey, New York Minute features a number of references to Donkey Kong, including the Times Square jumbotron displaying the original arcade game.

Course layout[edit]

In the standard layout, all of the racers start the course in front of Times Square. Just after the starting line, the road bends in a slight curve to the right through Broadway and ends in a bridge that leads into Central Park. In the park, the road takes a sharp turn to the left and circles back under the bridge where the racers entered the park. After the bridge, the road continues straight until it turns sharply to the right back into the city. There, the players pass the Empire State Building and St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan. After another turn to the right, the players are back at the starting line. In New York Minute R, this layout is reversed.

In Times Square, many billboards can be seen. There are ads for Galaxy Air, Banana Boy ("The Smash Hit Musical!"), Broadway Musical Entertainment, Donkey Kong ("The Best Musical!"), Burning DK, Barrel Travel, 1-UP Mushroom Car Insurance Group, Mario Work Gear, and Shy Guy Metals.

Appearances[edit]

New York Tour[edit]

In the New York Tour, New York Minute served as the tour's signature course. It appeared as the second course in the Koopa Troopa Cup, the third course in the Diddy Kong Cup, the location of the bonus challenges in the Yoshi Cup and the Metal Mario Cup, and the location of the tour's Coin Rush. Its T variant appeared as the first course in the Mario Cup and the third course in the Dry Bowser Cup, its R variant appeared as the third course in the Bowser Cup and the second course in the Toadette Cup, and its R/T variant appeared as the second course in the Shy Guy Cup and the third course in the Metal Mario Cup. This was one of two times where a course's variant appeared before its standard form in its debut tour, the other being Tokyo Blur in the succeeding tour, the Tokyo Tour.
