My lease for a decent 1BR in LIC was $2350/month. Without the COVID discount, it is increasing to $2640/month. Thoroughly enjoyed living here, should I suck it up and stay? My new role will also be perma remote in NY area so was considering moving a bit more suburb near the area if the rent could be drastically reduced.

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.
