As we joked in our 51 Things a Chicagoan Would Never Say, we've all lived in the Rog at some point. And let's be real: It's a hardship post. An insanely long commute. On the fringes of civilization. Living that far north is a commitment akin to the Night's Watch.
The home of the Tyrells always strikes us as the most desirable place to live in war-torn Westeros. It's pretty, tranquil, filled with wine and singing. Yeah, this feels right.
A crumbling shell of its former self where nobody is exactly itching to take residence.
Jorah Mormont would perform wonderfully at IML.
The former seat of power, but now a ghost of what it once was. In the years since its major players moved out, Wicker Park has been taken over by ambitious powerplayers, well-dressed women and dog bakeries. Wait, are we talking about the books or the 'hood?
Obviously. The brightest are sent to train at the Citadel to become Maesters. Sounds a bit like Second City to us.
I know a bunch of old rich people live there, but we never really see them.
The coastal home of Robert Baratheon, a former great warrior turned into a silly, gluttonous king. Sounds perfect for a former military station turned Build-A-Bear workshop and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
Where the banks are. Lots of canals.
If they had bike messengers in Game of Thrones, they would totally live in Pyke. The Iron Born are tough and cool and kind of out on their own.
Have you ever talked to a U. of C. student? Their parents treat them as if they were Sweetrobin Arryn. "Don't wander outside the towers! There are roving clans of warriors out there!" The Eyrie keeps to itself. Actually, the Vale is quite pretty.
Those who only watch the television show will be hearing a lot more about Dorne in coming episodes. The far southern territory of Westeros rightfully has a chip on its shoulder from being left out of the conversation. But, really, there are some key players in the ongoing story there. Fitting for the home of Kanye West and Michelle Obama.
