New Yorkers bleed orange and blue.
The Mets edged out the Yankees as the city's favorite team, while upstate fans are still loyal to the Bronx Bombers, according to a new poll.
A Quinnipiac University poll this week asking about team allegiances found the Amazins were favored over the Yanks 45 to 43 percent across the five boroughs.
The orange and blue bested the pinstripes, who have long been a powerhouse across the city largely due to their successful seasons and 27 World Series wins — something most Yankees fans bring up as often as they can.
But when it comes to loyalty, the Yankees lead only in upstate counties.
When they weren't supporting minor league teams that play in their hometowns, upstate fans backed the Yankees by a margin of 48 to 32 percent, the poll found.
Five percent of our neighbors to the north support the Boston Red Sox, Mayor Bill de Blasio's favorite team.
“When they’re not following the Buffalo Bisons, the Syracuse Chiefs or the Tri-City ValleyCats, upstate baseball fans cheer for the New York Yankees,” the assistant director of Qunnipiac University's poll, Maurice Carroll, said.
Baseball returns to the city next week, with the Mets taking on the Atlanta Braves on Monday in their home opener. The Yankees will take on the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, April 10 in their home opener.
