Because using the whole ILS would conflict with LGA, EWR, NYC helicopter and other traffic. It's also a lot quicker to use the Canarsie Approach... There's a really long thread on the Canarsie Approach (Approach to 13L) like 2 weeks ago...

Yeah i saw this approach on many aircraft when I was waiting for my flight to Korea and then onto Australia with KE. It was quite strange at first when I was looking and the plane was flying a diffrent direction totally and onto the runway minutes later. It does look pretty cool that approach, when I first landed at JFK i was wondering why we took a nice sharp turn and a couple of months later after I flew back out of JFK i realized why.
