In January 2010, friends and family of Laurence's gathered in the lobby of the Children's Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center at Mount Sinai to view the plaque dedicated in his memory. The plaque was presented by the Center to thank the LPMF for funding a social work program for kids with Crohn's & Colitis. In two of the pictures, you will see Josh Silverman, our main inspiration for this project. This program was made possible by the generosity of all the contributors at the 2009 Laurence Polatsch Memorial Golf Tournament.


























The Laurence Polatsch Memorial Fund unveiled the Laurence Polatsch Memorial Family Room at New York University's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in September 2007. You can see Dan and Luke by the sign and in the room. If you would like to visit the playroom, it is located at 560 First Avenue on the 9th floor and you will need to arrange a visit in advance due to the location of the room. This playroom was made possible by the generosity of Laurence's friends and family who participated in the 2006 Memorial Golf Tournament.






On May 8, 2006, The Laurence Polatsch Memorial Fund unveiled the Laurence Polatsch Children's Playroom at The Mount Sinai Hospital in the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. You can see Dan and Luke outside the playroom. If you would like to visit the playroom, it is located at 1184 Fifth Avenue on the 4th floor. This playroom was made possible by the generosity of Laurence's friends and family who participated in the 2005 Memorial Golf Tournament.



 
Laurence's fraternity brothers dedicated a brick in Laurence's honor in the ground at the Michigan Football Stadium.

 




The first Laurence Polatsch Memorial Golf Tournament held on May 5, 2003 raised enough money to erect a tribute to LP in one of his favorite places - New York's Central Park. You can visit the bench on the east side of Central Park just off Fifth Avenue between 72nd Street and 76th Street facing the model boat pond. LP's bench is in the most northern group of benches facing the water.





Laurence grew up in Woodbury, NY in a small cul-de-sac named Troy Court. In honoring Laurence, the Town has renamed Troy Court to Laurence Polatsch Way. LP Way is located off Colgate Lane, which is off Woodbury Road in Woodbury (almost across the street from GEICO)



There is a bench in Laurence's honor located at the entrance to the Ambulatory Surgery Pavilion at North Shore Hospital at Plainview. The hospital is located on Old Country Road just off the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway (Route 135).




The first bench on the boardwalk in Long Beach is at National Bouleavrd directly in front of the bar Turqoise - the only bar on the boardwalk. The second bench in honor of Laurence was placed near the women's rest room on the boardwalk (about two blocks east of the first bench) and was erected by Esther & Ronnie Gross.




The Town of Oyster Bay has erected a beautiful memorial on the water front in the Town of Oyster Bay. It has all the residents of the Town that were lost on September 11th . It's quite impressive and serene.
