They already do it there and did before 1972, when I was there with my
family watching Fisher beat Spassky. To a seven year old girl from
NY, it was fascinating to be in buildings completely warmed by the
Earth back then.
However, there is a big movement in green construction to tap into
geothermal power anywhere. Granted, this building was built by an
architect for himself as an example of what was possible (he died
unexpectedly a year after its completion and it's been sold since):
I studied his plans and was astounded by the depth of the geothermal
tap, especially knowing what I do about the tunnel systems under
Manhattan. It's amazing he was able to pull this off in this location
and that the City of NY supported him.
