Am I correct?  I seem to recall reading that trains arriving in Brewster via the PUT were actually facing south on the Harlem Line.

You memory is fairly good.  The Put entered Brewster via a "Y" in the yard south of the station.  Geographically, the Harlem line ran north/south while, approaching Brewster, the Put was east/west, so a train could be facing south if it took that leg of the "Y".
