    If you're hungry at some point, I'd grab a burger from Shake Shack http://shakeshacknyc.com/

    You can fit in a lot in two days.

    If you want to do the traditional things then:
    Empire State Building and have a beer when you get down at Heartlands which is a microbrewery
    Staten Island - rather than pay to go to Ellis Island and round Staten, jump on the free local ferry
    Walk in Central Park
    Go and see a musical on Broadway

    Other things that I like to do, but would depend on your time and whether you are interested would be:
    Guggenheim Museum
    Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art
    Helicopter ride over the city
    Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge
    Walking tour of New York

    I like just walking round New York. Its an amazing city and each time I go, I find museums and neighbourhoods that are great. Recently, I walked from the Empire State Building down to the Staten Island Ferry, taking in as much as I could, including the Tennament Museum which I found totally fascinating - and its located fairly close to the famous Katz Deli/Diner which is a must for lunch.

    Last time I got a travel pass which allowed for use of the bus and metro and I found that invaluable.

    And of course, there is always shopping! almost 10 years ago
