New York in 2 days
I know that there are many sights in New York, but I will have only 2 days to go sightseeing. Can you give me some advice which places worth visiting and which not?

That's a hard task...
Due to the shortness of your stay it' very difficult. It depends on your interests..
For the evening I would try to gather a ticket for a brodway show.
I would symply try to take a walk and see the famous places: 5th avenue, wall street, China Town, Harlem, Brooklyn bridge.
Maybe after your visit you tell us how you managed this; to see the most from New York in two days...

I was in the same situation a couple of years ago. I chose to roam New York the entire night, visiting as much as possible and it turned out to be a bad decision because I was too tired to actually enjoy any of the sights.

The ones I would really recommend you spend some time on are Empire State and Times Square (especially in the evening) and if you're into art, the MET is a good call.

Definitely walk from the Southern tip of Manhattan north towards the World Trade Center site. You'll pass Wallstreet on the way up. If you keep walking, make a stop a few streets up at Canal Street. This is China own and it's fun and interesting. I would still continue to walk further North a bit more and then maybe catch a Subway to spend an hour or so in Central Park.

For a nice dinner, I can recommend the Old Homestead steakhouse. It's a bit pricy, but really worth it, especially since you are from Europe.
