Nighttime time lapse in the City

I’m impressed by the great nighttime time lapse movies made in downtown cities.  What settings do people use for shooting time lapse photos at night in the city? I can’t find specifics on this on the Internet.

I’m thinking that using a 28mm f/2.0 lens on a full-frame camera, I might shoot:

4 seconds shutter speed, f/9 aperture, ISO 100, and use an 8 second interval.

Am I in the ball park? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I plan to go out tonight to try my luck. Thanks!
