var geocoder;
geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(latitude, longitude);
//alert("Else loop" + latlng);
geocoder.geocode({
'latLng': latlng
}, function(results, status) {
//alert("Else loop1");
if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
if (results[0]) {
var add = results[0].formatted_address;
alert("Full address is: " + add);
} else {
alert("address not found");
}
} else {
//document.getElementById("location").innerHTML="Geocoder failed due to: " + status;
//alert("Geocoder failed due to: " + status);
}
});

Answer
var geocoder;
geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(latitude, longitude);

geocoder.geocode(
    {'latLng': latlng}, 
    function(results, status) {
        if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
                if (results[0]) {
                    var add= results[0].formatted_address ;
                    var  value=add.split(",");

                    count=value.length;
                    country=value[count-1];
                    state=value[count-2];
                    city=value[count-3];
                    alert("city name is: " + city);
                }
                else  {
                    alert("address not found");
                }
        }
         else {
            alert("Geocoder failed due to: " + status);
        }
    }
);

Split the full address with "," as delimiter and get the city name..
