Social habits of NYC boroughs, according to the events they're attending

YPlan's mobile app was made to aid New Yorkers in one of their favorite activities: going out on the town. The app, a favorite of Ashton Kutcher and Pharrell Williams, curates events in the city each night from a wide range of categories.

"On any given day on YPlan you could find tickets to the Yankees game, a great concert at Barclay's center, some great Broadway productions, Cirque du Soleil as well as those great niche events like tasting menus, night club access, and art gallery openings," says Vito Iaia, the app's North America managing director.

And that's why the folks at YPlan know the five boroughs in a way few others do. They know who's into music, and who's not afraid to live it up on a Monday night. They know who's spontaneous, who plans ahead and who has the best sense of humor (according to their sales, anyway). We got them to share their insights with us, some of which may definitely surprise you.

YPlan is available for free download on the Apple Store and Google Play.

When it comes to tasting events, Staten Islanders take the cake. Manhattanites come in second, but Staten Island's daring taste buds even leave them in the dust.

Brooklynites may think they're the musical ones in the city, but it's the Bronx that loves a good jam sesh most of all. Queens falls the farthest behind in this category.

It's a good thing Brooklyn finally got the Nets, because this borough loves a good sporting event. Staten Islanders, however, have showed zero interest in going out to a ballgame.

Biggest Sunday Funday enthusiasts: Staten Island

Do Brooklynites have the right idea? They're fighting off the Monday blues by having fun after work, and the Bronx, in second place, agrees with this method. Staten Islanders are least likely to go out on a Monday-- perhaps they went a little too hard at Sunday brunch?

Most likely to plan ahead: Manhattan

The city's type A residents are in Manhattan, it seems, as the borough is filled with those most likely to plan a night out eight days in advance.

Most spontaneous: Staten Island
