Progress Report: Union and First Streets

The foundations of the first two houses planned for Union and First streets are now almost completely clad with brick, but this observer is curious about the provenance of the brick being used. Does it come from the Old Brick Tavern that was demolished at the intersection of Routes 9H and 66? Is it the brick from the facade of General Worth's birthplace? Does it come from the part of 620-624 State Street that was demolished in April 2010? Or is it new brick meant to look like old brick? If it is brick salvaged from some other building, it would be nice to know how the authentic fabric of Hudson is getting move around.
