In other words, what's the least popular city for trust fund babies to live in?

Look in the Rust Belt.

Avoid legacy cities (NYC, San Francisco) and trendy cities where trusties are able to exist purely on the basis of their bank accounts (Portland, Boulder, Asheville. etc.) rather than trying to exist in their often tight job markets.

Again with Jacksonville...

The varying stereotypes on this forum regarding the city are fascinating.

Yes, but there is a difference between a city generating wealth and where wealthy people that don't have to work settle. Pretty much any big city probably has a few big local companies that generate wealth. Some of the owners kids may stay on and try to run the company, but many choose to move to New York or LA, which are the big trust fund cities, and to a lesser extent the Bay Area and Miami (especially trust fund kids from Latin America).

This would give you an idea of how many people in each age group are not in the labor force:
