Putnam Triangle

Putnam Triangle [OpenStreetMap]

What was once a small fenced-off patch of grass has been transformed into valuable open space for the surrounding neighborhood. Putnam Triangle benefits from the recent elimination of the small stretch of Putnam Avenue that formerly cut through to the north of the park. Now, instead of an island at the intersection of three streets, the park joins with the pedestrian plaza and creates a large seating area. Large concrete planters have been placed throughout the plaza to add some greenery and new benches have been placed along the borders of Putnam Triangle to add seating. Street trees and movable tables and chairs create a calm atmosphere to take a break and enjoy an open-air lunch or just a place to rest while waiting for the B25 and B26 bus along Fulton Street.
