British punk is a genre, New York punk is a period.
When you think of the variety of New York punk of the mid- to late-70s, especially compared to London/the UK, it's as if NY skipped straight to post-punk.
That would depend on which bands you listened to and how you define punk. Throbbing Gristle/Wire/Siouxsie & the Banshees and a whole wealth of lesser known bands don't fit the straight jacket music press definition. Then you can look at The Ramones/ Dead Boys/The Dictators etc and not class them with post punk.
Marky gives a nice considered answer after 7 years!
