comment I need advice regarding the use of real-world locations in a novel
While I'm not a lawyer, I suggest that you chat with one. If you get a publishing contract, the publisher's lawyers will do the research.

You may want to look at the "plagiarism" tag to see if someone has addressed this: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/plagiarism

comment What are the Criteria that Distinguish a Thriller from Horror?
But you can have a horror movie in which the victim isn't isolated (Cloverfield, maybe -- IT might qualify), your friends don't turn on you (Hell Night, IT), and you don't turn into "one of them" (IT, Misery). Those are frequently seen in horror movies, but I wouldn't call any of them required criteria.

comment What are the Criteria that Distinguish a Thriller from Horror?
This is really a discussion question; there is no one right answer. (You ended with "Any ideas?" which is pretty bluntly an invitation to discussion.) People have varying sensitivities and triggers. Not every Stephen King novel is "horror," and you could argue that not every Tom Clancy novel is a "thriller." Stack Exchange is about concrete, answerable questions with essentially objective answers, and this is too subjective.
