What is a good lens (or 2) for NYC candids and city shots?

I'm going with the girlfriend so I'll want evening pictures with the empire state building in the back (etc.) And I'll want a lens that could be well rounded for the day as well.

For evening I was thinking the Canon 28mm because of f/1:8. For the day I was thinking Sigmas 17-50 f/2:8. I've recently read excellent reviews about that lens. I just don't know if I'll need more of a zoom to get some nice pictures. Any advice you have would be helpful. I'm a newbie to photography and this forum and this is my first time posting. Thanks.
