But, hopefully it doesn't hurt business. Some people were mad about it, some people that came in and were like, 'Oh can you smoke. ' I and said no you can't smoke. They got mad, but it's the new law so it's going to be like that everywhere," said Hannah Bourque, who works at a business on Bourbon Street. Here's reminder of how that ban works:. - Smoking is no longer allowed in bars, restaurants, casinos and at the fairgrounds. - There is no smoking allowed within five feet of Lafayette Square. - Smoking is now prohibited in outdoor sporting arenas and stadiums -- except during concerts, festivals and parades. - Smoking will be allowed during carnival balls in the Morial Convention Center. "I hate having to go to bars, and I don't smoke, and I'm always breathing in cigarettes from other people," said Joshua Ridgell, who works at a Bourbon Street business. "I worked a door tonight at a gentleman's club downtown, and I cannot tell you how many customers came up to and were like, 'Hey can we smoke in here still. ' I tell them no and they get pissed off and walk away. But long story short, everyone does like to have a good time and cut loose. So eventually they're going to have to get used to it. They will suck it up, and they will come down here and have a good time. Video: Businesses prepare for smoking ban to take effect.

HARTFORD — A 50-year-old Connecticut man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the death of his wife, who was found dead of a skull fracture inside their home in May 2014. The Hartford Courant reports that John Dewees Jr. , of Enfield, was... Dewees pleaded guilty in April to manslaughter and cruelty to persons. Prosecutors say 45-year-old Anja Dewees, who was chronically ill, suffered a severe head injury when she was thrown into a bathtub after soiling herself. Prosecutors argued that Dewees abused his wife. He told police he had been caring for her for about four years.

QUEENS — A new condo featuring door handles made of Swarovski Crystals and adorned with a 24-carat gold leaf mosaic in the kitchen hit the market for $1,288,886 — marking what might be historically the highest asking price in Rego Park, experts... The owner of a nearly 1,500-square-foot apartment at Millennium 99, a luxury condo at 63-36 99th St. , invested $150,000 to make her home "very sexy and sleek," after purchasing it for $875,000 in 2013, said Harold Valestin, a broker at Nest Seekers. For instance, the owner, a jeweler who asked to remain anonymous, added 24K gold leaf mosaic tiles to the kitchen and painted some of the walls with Swarovski Crystal dust, said Valestin, the broker for the home. The master bath is also decorated with gold-plated fixtures, he added. "It’s one of the most well done homes in Queens and it could compete with some of the best in the city. Everything is sparkling," said Valestin, who noted that the owner had dubbed the home "Jewelry Box" for its opulence. The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment also features floor-to-ceiling windows and heated floors throughout , he said. In addition, water in the entire apartment, including the shower, is filtered by a water purifier and one of the bathrooms includes a Jacuzzi tub, he said. The listing is the most recent example of changes coming to the neighborhood, experts said. “Rego Park is becoming one of the next rising stars of Queens,” Valestin said. “A lot of people know Long Island City, they know Astoria, they know Forest Hills — now Rego Park is strongly becoming a competitor to those neighborhoods. The asking price of the Millennium 99 condo is comparable to that of several apartments currently on the market at The Aston , a new luxury condo in Forest Hills, a neighborhood traditionally pricier than Rego Park. At the same time, the price is much higher than other condominiums in "old developments" in Rego Park, which experts said are “in a different category all together. The average price for other two-bedroom condominiums with two bathrooms listed in Rego Park so far this year is $687,236, according to data provided by Exit Kingdom Realty , a Forest Hills-based real estate company. Rego Park's shopping options is one draw for prospective buyers, experts said. “The neighborhood right now has a really good mix of the big-box stores as well as the small businesses,” said Vincent Koo.
