I don't think so, mate.
Johnny Carson once described a New York Minute as being the time it takes "From the (traffic) lights to turn green, till the guy behind you starts honking his horn"
New York minute
1. a very short time (as the time it takes the eye blink or the heart to beat); "if I had the chance I'd do it in a flash"
(synonym) blink of an eye, flash, heartbeat, instant, jiffy, split second, trice, twinkling, wink
(hypernym) moment, minute, second, bit
A New York minute is a very short period of time, sometimes significantly shorter than sixty seconds, and sometimes a form of hyperbole for "perhaps faster than you would believe is possible". The term refers to the common perception that New York City is very busy, with much happening at all hours of the day, and people often in a hurry and likely to be impatient.
