Trying to open new activity for each item in list from listview

ListView cityListView;

@Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_cities);

//get list view from xml
cityListView = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.cityListView);

String[] Cities = {
        "New York",
        "San Diego",
        "Las Vegas"};
ListAdapter cityAdapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, Cities);
ListView cityListView = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.citiesListView);

        new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {
            public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int position, long id) {
                String cities = String.valueOf(parent.getItemAtPosition(position));
                Toast.makeText(Cities.this, cities, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

                if (position == 1) {
                    //code specific to first list item
                    Intent myIntent = new Intent(view.getContext(), NewYork.class);
                    startActivityForResult(myIntent, 0);

I was getting some errors with the syntax of the code, after I got through with that error. The cod would run but not open the other activity. Would give me the "Unfortunately there was an error" and it would just crash.
