I want to know the cost of electric, gas, heat, a/c, water, food, transportation, phone (no bundle with the cable company), cable (if possible the cost of premium networks) and internet

Most of these are generic and apply city wide.
If you are asking about the neighborhood, note the eastern border is Washington Ave (anything further is Crown Heights, most listings on craigslist are really in CH). Expect upper teens for a 1BR in a prime part of the area.
Heat should almost always been included in rent, although always ask. I personally would not rent an apt where heat is not included.
Cooking gas should be 10-20 a month, electric could be 60 (assuming 1 person) but could vary.
Transportation depends how often you need a metrocard. Unlimited monthly is a little over $100 a month I think.
My cable, phone and internet is a package deal. Most will offer a package deal for $100ish for a the first year, then it can vary from there
