Best lens for night time photography

I live in NYC and am interested in taking nighttime photos of cityscapes, bridges, etc. w/ my A6000. I am a beginner and I've tried with 16-50mm kit lens but pics didn't come out well likely due to small aperture and hand held shooting.

I know a lot of people use the Rokinon 12mm for these shots but I'm wondering if that might be too wide and would be better with Sony 35mm f/1.8, for example.

I recently rented the Sony 20mm f/2.8 and thought pics were OK, but didn't seem nearly as sharp as a Sony 50mm f/1.8 I used a while ago, which makes me think I need an aperture of 2.0 or wider.

I'd be interested in hearing what lenses have been used and what folks like and dislike. Thanks.
