With parishes sometimes only several blocks apart to the north, south, east, and west, it is less easy to conclude where the majority of the faithful will worship when parishes are consolidated.

Most of the faithful will not worship at all. The Catholic Church in NYC doesn’t have too many parishes, it has too few regular Mass-goers. There’s no shortage of Catholics, just witness how on Ash Wednesday we have to bolt the doors or they’ll just keep coming forever.
