How close is Brooklyn to John F. Kennedy airport?

JFK is roughly 3 miles east of Brooklyn. JFK is in southeast Queens, and Brooklyn and Queens are right next to each other. Queens sits to the north and east of Brooklyn, as if Brooklyn was trying to lift Queens up, but she's too big, and now she's leaning heavily on the east side, about to fall down. And JFK is about 3 miles east of the border between the two boroughs.

However, Brooklyn is almost 100 square miles in area, so if you have a specific destination in Brooklyn in mind, it might be up to 12 miles away as the crow flies. From JFK to, say, Bay Ridge, would be about 12 miles away; Downtown Brooklyn would be 10 miles away; Crown Heights would be 8 miles; Canarsie, 6 miles.

What is walking distance between Terminal 3 Delta and Terminal 4 Alitalia at John F. Kennedy airport?

You can walk to terminal 4 from 3 ..about 10 mins..NOT advisable if you have a lot of carry on luggage. It's better to hop on the FREE ground transporation bus that goes around but be advised if you are going from 4 to 3..it goes in a counter-clockwise direction so if you are at 4, it will go to 5..6..7..8..9..1..2..3 and that's going to take 15-20 mins especially if it's rush hour at the airport.
