Renege regional boutique for EB? URGENT

Title says it all. I accepted an offer at XYZ regional boutique bank in my hometown. Now an EB/BB has made an offer in NYC.

Salary at boutique is 130k all-in. EB/BB is north of 180k.

How do I not burn bridges in my hometown and renege properly? I really value the opinions of the people at the boutique as they are big in my network, but this is actually a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Please help me monkeys.

Lifestyle would be 60 hours vs. 80 hours. PE exits are mind-bogglingly different as you would expect. Comp adjusted is about equal with a small edge going to the EB/BB

PE exits are likely given my background. Boutique - LMM vs. EB - MM/UMM. I'm very much filtered out of the MF race, thank god.
