Can you walk between terminals at JFK?

HI,

I know there is an airtrain connecting the terminals.

I am wondering if you can also walk?

Is there a walkway/sidewalk from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1?

Thanks for any info.

Generally speaking it is not walkable. The terminals are not that close and they are connected by roadway.

Thanks! I have a looong layover and will be meeting my sister at the food court in Terminal 1 so just wondered about taking a walk between flights.

Yes, you can walk from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1. It's easy and it's really close! Just exit on the arrivals level and enter Terminal 1 at the arrivals level. I do it all the time, and so do the airport employees. It does mean you'll have to go through security when you go back to catch your next flight of course.

Thanks ! We did end up walking between terminals on the way back.

There's a lot of construction but it was still pretty easy to do.
