Are you kidding? The North East is the most densely populated region, there's loads to see there, depends what you want to see. Besides the Rockies what is there between San Fransisco and Chicago? It's a long way through mostly flat plains from Northern California - Chicago.

How are you traveling from Chicago to New York? Because apart from the Appalachians, there's nothing between those two places.
EG from Chicago the next state over is Indianna, home to the Indy 500 race, Michigan has car museums, also a nice place to chill at one of the lakes, Ohio is home to the biggest and best amusement park in the world. If you're there in Autumn, watching a collage football game would be a great, authentic American experience, and it's pretty popular in this area. Going eastwards from here veer north to go via Niagara Falls, or south via pittsburg; home to Andy Warhol and close to Falling Water, Central Pennslyvania is Amish country, Philadelphia is very historic.
OP those are amazing cities you've picked! $2k should be enough for a decent month in the US.
