I'm a stickler for taking family pictures every year, but this year I procrastinated and missed the fall season. Now it's way too cold to take outdoor pictures so I'm thinking this might give us an opportunity to take pictures at a cool location we wouldn't ordinarily use. Any suggestions?

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.
Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....
