    No streets but here are the Gates names: according tothe historian Josephus, with the reference to their occurrence in the Old Testament:--Gate of Ephraim. (2 Chronicles 25:23; Nehemiah 8:16; 12:39) This is probably the same as the--


    Gate of Benjamin. (Jeremiah 20:2; 37:13; Zechariah 14:10) If so, it was 400 cubits distant from the--


    Corner gate. (2 Chronicles 25:23; 26:9; Jeremiah 31:38; Zechariah 14:10)


    Gate of Joshua, governor of the city. (2 Kings 23:8)


    Gate between the two walls. (2 Kings 25:4; Jeremiah 39:4)


    Horse gate. (Nehemiah 3:28; 2 Chronicles 23:15; Jeremiah 31:40)


    Ravine gate (i.e. opening on ravine of Hinnom). (2 Chronicles 26:9; Nehemiah 2:13,15; 3:13)


    Fish gate. (2 Chronicles 33:14; Nehemiah 3:13; Zephaniah 1:10)


    Dung gate. (Nehemiah 2:13; 3:13)


    Sheep gate. (Nehemiah 3:1,32; 12:39)


    East gate. (Nehemiah 3:29)


    Miphkad. (Nehemiah 3:31)


    Fountain gate (Siloam?). (Nehemiah 12:37)


    Water gate. (Nehemiah 12:37)


    Old Gate. (Nehemiah 12:39)


    Prison gate. (Nehemiah 12:39)


    Gate Harsith (perhaps the Sun; Authorized Version East gate). (Jeremiah 19:2)

    Hard to say, they've been changed so much since then, some info here.
