Location for Mobile Skyline photo

I want to grab a good skyline photo of Mobile when I come through town next week. I'll have limited time, so would like to arrive after dusk, find a good spot, take a few photos, then unfortunately, be on my way west.

Looks like the 'traditional' shot is from across the river around the Addsco & Dunlap streets area (Harrison Bros. Dry Dock), but google doesn't give a street view of this area, so I can't see if it's accessible. Also is it safe after dusk? here's an example of a shot on google from that area - https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&cid=12095391576012257724&q=Pilot+Travel+Center&iwloc=A&gl=US&hl=en

Any suggestions on this? Thanks so much!

Don't know from which way you are coming FROM, but along hwy-90 NEAR the battleship would be one location. This faces west. Another location would be I-10 area, just south of town, looking north. I have always liked the location of Airport Blvd. west bound from I-65 about 1 1/2 miles up the hill, stop and looking BACK east. Have wanted to take this picture with Moon just rising, but just been lazy and havent. Hope this help and enjoy your drive through. jim

Hope it's not too late, but I would recommend the causeway. Tracy Jacks has a great view, but there are several places you could stop on the causeway
