The 2000 Census (United States Census, 2000) reported 161,900 Romanians were living in New York City. They are mainly concentrated in The Bronx, as well as in parts of Manhattan and Staten Island.

Later Years In 1944, Maurin began to lose his memory. Sheehan, 201. His condition deteriorated until he died at the Catholic Worker's Maryfarm near Newburgh, New York, on May 15, 1949, "the Feast of St. Dymphna, patroness of mental health, the anniversary also of St. John Baptiste de la Salle and the Papal encyclicals, Rerum Novarum and Quadragesimo Anno...Many remarked the strange convergence of anniversaries." Sheehan, 202. At the wake, many people were seen to touch their rosaries to his hands surreptitiously, indicating their belief in his sanctity. Sheehan, 203-204. Such an action is consonant with the Catholic belief in the sacramentality of the world, that material objects and human persons in their physicality can be conduits for the power and presence of God. By touching their rosaries to him, the rosary would become a second-class relic. See Roman Catholic classification and prohibitions The Staten Island Catholic Worker farm was named after Maurin following his death; Miller, William D. Dorothy Day: A Biography.

Though injured, Sally puts up an intense struggle and a blood-soaked gun-in-hand grapple ensues. Hardly able to breathe, Bobby Sr. exerts himself beyond his limits to again shoot Sally, this time in the face. He then shoots Carlos dead.

In a coughing fit while driving, he fumbles for his blood-covered inhaler, seems to lose consciousness, loses control of the car, and crashes into a sign pole, killing him.
