BROOKLYN - New York City has a new subway and bus shelter video campaign that targets teen parents and their wallets.

The ad features teens who talk about the high costs of having babies and the time it takes to parent in an effort to cut down on teen pregnancy in the city. The ad points out that a child can cost $10,000 a year to raise.

Marjorie Cadgon, from the city's Human Resources Administration, says that Brooklyn and the Bronx have the highest teen pregnancy rates in the city.

The Human Resources Administration says it also wants to help teens that are already pregnant or a parent. The agency is offering a variety of classes and programs to give aid to those in need.
