Russian periodulitsa Pushkinskaya west of the railway crossing
ulitsa Minskaya east of the railway crossing
Polish period"ulica 3 Maja" (3d May Str) west of the railway crossing,
"ulica 9 Lutego" (9th February) east of the crossing
A stretch of "ulica 3 Maja" between Steckiewicz St. and Dluga St. was a pedestrian precinct, that was called "Gaz". The origin of the name is not quite clear.
In the passage below from the Book "Brest Unforgettable Town" there is a suggestion that the youth were lured by the street. They used to rush to it after classes, saying "Step on the gas!". Hence the Polish name "gaz" (gas).Brześć posiadał swoj deptak nazywany „Gazem", przypuszczalnie dlatego, że młodzież bardzo się nań spieszyła; był to odcinek 3 Maja, między ulicą Steckiewicza a Długą.
Another version belongs to Moysey Sare, who suggests that the Polish name derived from the Yiddish word "gass" (street)
