No such API exists because all the data is available and OSM supports free-form tags. The OSM API is primarily concerned with editing elements or retrieving specific elements or all elements in a bounding box.

Specific types of elements can be retrieved using Overpass, but this, like all OSM, data does not have a specific concept of '''a street'''.

It is important to read up about how OSM data is created before establishing one's expectations of what and how to retrieve such data.
