Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

How are the nodes id connected to the city? The streets which are directly connected to the city a very few. Most of the streets are not connected to anything. However each street is connected to a node. Is there a way to extract the city or suburb based only on the streets information? Like NodeIds, longitude, latitude etc.?

City based only on longitude, latitude? What you mean is called "reverse geocoding". See

If that does not help, please describe your use case.

Please note, that although you do not use maps, you still need to obey our few license requirements and (if you do not run your own server) the usage restrictions/terms of the server which you will be using.
