New York City
It's densely populated and hectic, but this is New York City after all. Often labeled the cultural capital of the world, whatever you need/want, you'll find it here (except for low rent). There is an over-abundance of everything from cafes to nightlife, neighborhoods to wander, communities to join, beautiful parks, cuisine from around the world, all kinds of activities, Broadways shows and free concerts and on and on. It is expensive to live here though but you get plenty in return if you can swing the high costs, making a great short term splurge for remote workers.
