I have not but OP is leaving Tel Aviv voluntarily
Just a comment about this. I often say to myself "Man, this place is perfect, I wish Tel Aviv was located here" haha. I'd take Tel Aviv with me anywhere if I could.

I love the Tel Aviv fun and hustle and bustle, the million bars and variety of restaurants, the awesome weather and beach, the fun easy-going people, the entrepreneurship vibe that this place has.

The rest of the country is not so much to my liking though and I think this place is going down the gutter. I don't want to stay here and definitely don't want to raise my kids here. Sad to say but that's my opinion.

It looks like momentarily you're a better fit for NYC than Zurich but this...only you know. If ZH didn't feel like fun to you when you've spent a couple of months there, chances are your feelings about the place won't change too much. Sure, the expat crowd is usually welcoming but compared to NYC this is a small place. In general people are less inclined to hang with colleagues after office hours or whatever activity in a sport group etc but this is just my experience. Some things re. social life come very natural and effortless in some places because the culture is different. Zurich is not really one of them IMHO.
Sure, it has a lot of qualities you'll be ready to appreciate later. Again, only you know your priorities.

Re: NYC or Zurich: Single guy, 26 y/o

and where did OP go ?

my take:

a) - nowhere due to the travel ban
b) - not to NYC due to the Proclamations ?
c) - nowhere as US embassies process IVs with massive delays (years?)
d) - nowhere due to lack of COVID passport
e) - nowhere
f) - NYC
d( - ZRH
