In the sentence "My friend is doing strange things in the streets. People stares at him" is the grammar correct?

Is it correct use "on the street" instead of "in the street"?
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
I suggest if you use "is doing" you use "are staring."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
If this is a one-off occurrence then your friend can't be doing strange things in more than one street at the same time:
- My friend is doing strange things in the street and people are staring at him.
If he does strange things regularly and he does them in different streets with the same result every time:
- My friend does strange things in the streets and people stare at him.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
