Here's an example Overpass API script that searches the visible area for a particular named street and then outputs the names of nearby streets:


Click "Run" there without moving the map much (or "Bluegrass Drive" won't be found). I don't think there is a way to make the output any simpler.

You could adjust the script to use some other method of finding the starting street. There's quite a few options https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API/Overpass_QL.
