What are the benefits of living in a city for your career?

This may be hard to explain but I’ve been working since college graduation (2020) as a UX designer but every position I’ve had is fully remote.

I live about 45 min outside NYC and recently I’ve been thinking about the benefits of moving to the city in order to go into the company office more often and to be around programmers and other designers.

In general is there value to my career long term by being around coworkers and other designers? Or am I just overthinking it?
