David Singer of New York died 1964 Maryland

Looking for parents/ancestors of DAVID LEE SINGER who died in 1964, who was born around 1905 or 6 in or near New York, New York...Manhattan? area. His parents were from Romania. His mother may have died when he was young. It is thought his father was also known as "David". At the age of 14, the younger David was among over 700 orphans in a New York orphanage in 1920! Haven't found a "David" born in 1905 or 1906 on the 1910 census in any Singer/Senger family household, in that area....even using some spelling variations. Wonder if the father also died shortly after immigration or remarried and moved away. I understand there were about 40,000 Jewish immigrants from Romania by the early 1900's into New York...but don't know much beyond that! Thank you.
