A little farther to the east you can see some of the icons that Apple uses for certain types of locations. The brown graduation cap is a high school. The knife and fork are a pizza restaurant. The gas pump is supposed to be a gas station, but there is no gas station at that location. There is a gas station across the street from the pizza parlor, but Apple doesn't mark that one.
