Hi All,

I have a character vector with naems of cities in the us. I need to extract
the number that appear after the word "New York", for example,

x<-c("P Los Angeles44AZ", "P New York722AZ", "K New York20")

I want the results to be 

722, 20

cab I use the grep function, if so how?
I appreciate your help, thanks,
