Historically, City College has had some students do very well on the Putnam. Most recently, Jan K. Siwanowicz was a Putnam Fellow in 2001, meaning he had one of the top five scores on the competition. (You can see his interview on interviewed on CUNY TV.) A quick search of prior winners yields many from City College.
