12 hours at JFK - where to go, where to store baggage?

In a couple of weeks time I will arrive at Terminal 8 on Cathay at 7 am. I leave Terminal 4 on Swiss at 7.25pm. It will be a weekday.

I want to leave 2 suitcases somewhere safe, then go downtown, have an iconic New York Deli sandwich and maybe a couple of hours at a museum, then head back to JFK and, hopefully a nice lounge.

Any suggestions/ hints or tips for the day welcomed.

There's a place in Terminal 4 that provides this service. However the best bet would be to have the agent who checks you in for CX to interline your bag to Swiss. While you'll need to carry it through customs, you can then simply drop it at the bag recheck belt. No need to see an agent.
