Don't mind the reviews, these are generally people that got Dragonpass some other way (via their bank or some other institution) and have other conditions tied to it (e.g. 2 max visits abroad and 1 visit in their home country) and didn't really understand the conditions they had or just plain up were chancing their arm.
General rule of thumb is, if you paid straight out for a visit you can access all lounges, if you got it free with visits included (from your Bank or something) these have strings attached.
Same for Priority Pass, if you pay straight up for it then you have access to everything, if you got it free then (e.g. from AMEX Platinum) then you cannot access the Priority Pass Restaurants but still have unlimited visits in Lounges for you, the partner card holder + 1 guest each.
T5 in JFK does have a lounge, just it's not Airside, many Airports are like this, Langkawi and Bydgoszcz being two recent ones in memory
