The Time Warner Center was a two-tower commercial and residential structure located in the center of the city, completed in 2003. The apartment in question was owned by Warren T. McIntyre, CFO of the Marina Group, a global private equity firm. Mr. McIntyre's actual residence was Imperial Beach, in CA. Beth McIntyre was allowed to reside in her father's unit until the Manhattan real estate market stabilized. Footage of the inside of Beth's apartment was recorded by Rob Hawkins on April 27, at 6:42am, where he apparently stayed the night with Beth. At the time, Beth's father was "out of town".
Early on in the monster's attack, the second tower was hit, causing it to topple against the adjacent building at a 30o angle. Rob, Lily and Hud traveled to the top of the fist tower and traveled across the rooftop of the toppled building to the 39th floor and Beth's apartment. There, they discover Beth alive but impaled on a piece of rebar, though her left shoulder. They manage to free her and escape the building, traveling across the roof, and down through the first building.
