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

I'm new to the API, and am having a hard time going through the API documentation.

I am using browser JavaScript to get the geolocation (latitude and longitude), and would like to display the current neighbourhood/city based on the lat and long data. For example, having the lat and lon of 43.653225, -79.383186 would result in Toronto.

Is there a specific API GET request I can make? (i.e. https://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/lat=${lat}&long=${lon}...

Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.
