A day in the life of Matt Harvey …

Kathleen Lucadamo of the New York Times has a cool little feature on what a typical Sunday is like for Mets right-hander Matt Harvey, who is rehabbing from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. An excerpt:

I like to go to Freemans for brunch. There’s a men’s clothing shop, Freemans Sporting Club, next door, so I check out new suits while I’m there. They have really amazing material and options. So if I can get in a good brunch and pick up a great suit for an upcoming road trip, I’ll do it. Or I’ll go to John Varvatos to shop. The majority of my clothes are from there. Those guys have been very helpful in fashion. If I’m hungry, I go to Lure Fishbar for a bite.

Harvey pushed hard to rehab in New York City rather than Port St. Lucie, Florida — where the Mets have their spring training complex — and it’s easy to understand why. The 25-year-old is living the life of a Manhattan socialite.
