A place that is only known about by the people that either
B)live near there
Otherwise, no one knows about it. Trust me, I know by experience.
The Cow is the hottest place in Reisterstown. If you are visiting and dont know where anything is, ask for it in relations to The Cow and you'll find everything. It is basically the center of life in Reisterstown. Everyone goes there to hang out. That could also be because there is nothing else to do.
When you talk about Franklin, you usually mean the High School or Middle School. Almost everyone you know goes there. If everyone you know dont go there, you know at least one or two people who do.
Everyone in the Reisterstown/Glyndon area go to The Pool. By The Pool, I mean Glyndon Pool. Everyone goes there over the summer. It's a good place to see old friends and people you dont want to see. You can start a bf/gf relationship there within the first weeks of summer and then watch it fall apart by the end. Near the end of May, all the 8th graders from SHS(Sacred Heart School for you non-Reisterstowners) will be relaxing there until the rest of the school gets out. If you see people jumping into the pool with all their clothes on, its those SHS people.
Santoni's really means something. In the summer, people walk there from The Pool. They go even tho its one million degrees just to get snapple or a muffin. One tradition many have is the classic Mentos and Diet Coke. Everyone who goes to Santoni's in the summer spends all their money on Mentos and Diet Coke.
When people talk about The High School, they clearly mean Owings Mills High. Thats where the drug addicts and gangs go. It's not as big of a deal as Franklin but its close. There is a neighborhood across the street but no one who lives there goes to The High School.
