madina 'amrikiyya kabiira

or

madinatun 'amrikiyyatun kabiiratun

You cannot mix and match like the computer voice. Adjectives must agree with the noun.

"New York is an American big city". Why is it wrong?

Sounds unnatural to a native english speaker. You could say it if you were already talking about big cities, and wanted to specify that it was american, tho
