A.Word.A.Day--New York minute.

New York minute (NOO york MIN-it, NYOO -) noun

  A very short period of time; an instant.

[From the allusion to the frenzied pace of life in New York City.]

New Yorkers are stereotyped as people always in a hurry and often rude,
although there are many polite and generous New Yorkers. The term New York
Minute has been facetiously defined as the time between a New York City
traffic light turning green and the driver of the car behind you honking
his or her horn.
