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, New York set in nighttime; due to this, it is the signature course of 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.

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.
