Hi Sally, Putnam Avenue is very close to Manhattan. It is a train ride away from there. I dont know exactly where in Putnam Avenue you are going but it is very close to Franklin Avenue for which you can take the A, C or 4 train from the city. It is probably 15-20 minutes away. Ck out this subway map of NYC...follow the A, C or 4 out of Manhattan and into Brooklyn and you will see how the lines go by Franklin Ave...Putnam Avenue is in that vicinity. Good luck!

By the way, the A and C are the blue lines...4 is the green line...

Thanks so much for your help Anne! Its 45 Putnam Ave,dont know if that makes any difference! Im stay there for a while during the summer and I just wanted to make sure it wasnt too far from the city. Some people say ah its only a 20 minute train ride and then it ends up being an hour,just good to get reassurance!Hoe its an nice area!
