Why the Chazon Ish lived in Bnei Braq rather than Jerusalem

Bechadrei reports the following story, in which an interesting bit of Haredi history is revealed:

The sons of Rav Moshe Shternbuch recently went to Rav Chaim Kanievsky in Bnei Braq to bring him the new published volume of their fathers sefer, "Tshuvos vHanhagos, volume 6".

Rav Kanievsky received the new sefer and asked them how their father is doing - if "they" are still making trouble for their father.

When the Shterbuch sons responded that their father is still being harassed, Rav Chaim Kanievsky said to them that this is the reason the Chazon Ish did not want to live in Jerusalem..
