In 1906 New York's portion exceeded by $641,667 the value of Pennsylvania's product of common brick, that State being next to New York the largest producer of that variety of brick. In 1906 the value of clay products in only 5 States exceeded the value of the product of New ork's portion of this region, but in 1907 this value was exceeded by 8 States. Of the counties included in this region, Ulster had the largest product in 1907, 235,584,000 brick; Rockland was second with 233,562,000 brick; in value of product, however, Rockland was first, reporting $1,272,455, or $5.45 per thousand, compared with Ulster's $1,217,613, or $5.17 per thousand. In 1906 Rockland was first with 287,538,000 brick, valued at $1,823,371, and Ulster second with 261,970,000 brick, valued at $1,391,013.
