Moving from LA Boutique to NY PE


I'm an analyst in a big boutique in LA (think Moelis, Houlihan, Lazard, etc.) focused on M&A and LBO work. I'm desperate to move to NY after the end of my first year or my second year to a PE gig. Any recs on how to do this? Should I move to a different bank first? Seems like everyone wants to stay in LA or move to SF and I don't have any idea on how to approach this.

Moving because I miss the east coast and my family/SO is in NY. Also went to top 3 undergraduate target b-school in the east coast, if that helps.
