New York officially is a Mets town.

Vivid Seats, a secondary ticket marketplace, broke down where the most Mets and Yankees tickets were purchased from 2013 to 2015 in New York City, and the Mets won four out of five boroughs and 60 percent of the city overall.

The Yankees, obviously, took the Bronx.

Manhattan was the most divided borough with 52 percent Mets fans and 48 percent Yankees fans. That split corresponded roughly to fans’ proximity to the teams’ respective stadiums, with the Upper West Side, nearest to the Bronx, consisting of mostly Yankees fans, and midtown, a quick train ride to Flushing, consisting of mainly Mets fans.

Ticket purchases in Queens and the Bronx came mostly for the team that plays in each borough. Only one zip code in Queens, 11411, had more Yankees ticket purchases than Mets ticket purchases.
