Make firms aware at OCI of interest in different office then where they are interveiwing for?

Firm A, a firm with offices all over the US, is interviewing at my schools OCI. However in symplicity it indicates that they are interviewing for City X and nothing else. However they also have an office in City Y, my target area.

Should I tell them in my cover letter I upload that I prefer to work in City Y over City X?

I ask because I want to work in City Y, but I'd rather work Biglaw in City X then not get a job offer. I'm worried putting down my prefered location will auto ding me.

I certainly wouldn't say you prefer City Y. But it probably wouldn't hurt to mention that, in addition to City X, you would also be open to working in City Y.
