I think you are getting Bromley confused with Ludlow. When I was growing up in West Ludlow (closest to Bromley) there was no odor in Ludlow, but Bromley smelled rotten. However, when they built a new sanitation plant several miles west of Bromley, on Rt.8 (a beautiful drive except in winter), the odor in Bromley disappeared. And that was many years ago..
There is no odor problem is Ludlow, or Bromley in fact.
Ludlow is land locked and the downtown has gone through some blight. But the town, especally west of the High School and on Highway ave. is a hidden secret of low home prices and above average schools.
