There was a time when I thought I wanted to live in a big city. That time has passed. I can't imagine anything that would draw me away from my mid-tier city. Among hobbies I have, the only thing a major city would provide is high likelihood of major touring bands playing there. Anything else, no.

I have zero interest in a big city. None. They could offer me 200K and full benefits and I would still ask/demand for remote work. The people I know still living in the Bay Area are paying 4K a month to rent, or about the value of my house every two years.
