After what seemed like an eternity, the votes have been cast, the polls have closed and the results are in for the Democratic and Republican primaries in New York.

Democrat Hillary Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders 57.9 percent to 42.1 percent and Republican Donald Trump won the state with 60.5 percent to John Kasich’s 25.1 percent and Ted Cruz’ 14.5.

In Brooklyn, Clinton beat Sanders by 20 percentage points, while Trump earned 64 percent of Kings County’s vote.

Now that the results have been finalized, one can see how each and every Brooklyn neighborhood voted block by block with an interactive map from The New York Times. In addition to seeing how each neighborhood voted, users can break down votes by ethnicity and annual income.  

Clinton’s largest supporters, according to the map, are East Flatbush, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, East New York and Brownsville.

The maps show that Sanders’ biggest wins were in Greenpoint, Bushwick North, Dyker Heights and East Williamsburg. Sanders lost in Flatbush, where he was born.

On the Republican side, Trump did especially well in Brighton Beach and Bay Ridge, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich won in Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene and parts of Park Slope. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won in neighborhoods with higher Orthodox Jewish populations like Williamsburg, Borough Park and Crown Heights.

On the Democratic map, the neighborhoods that voted for Clinton are in blue while those that voted for Sanders are in green.

On the Republican map, the neighborhoods that voted for Trump are in red, those that voted for Kasich are in turquoise and those that voted for Cruz are in yellow.
