Well this has blown my mind. But fear not, a reader who works nearby says the Atlantic Plumbing Supply Company bricks will be saved:

“They’re numbering each brick so they can place it inside the sign in the building. I talked to one of the guys and he said that ABC or NBC news will be there to ‘witness’ them taking down the gum wall, which one of the guys explained will be enclosed in glass on the inside of the building.”
