President Obama just can’t get enough of the Big Apple — and its money.

Obama will visit Manhattan Wednesday for the third time in a month as he tries to raise $1 billion for his re-election campaign.

The president will reportedly come to Gotham Wednesday night to attend a fundraiser at the Fifth Avenue home of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine’s new wife, a dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria and a concert by the Roots at the Town Hall in midtown.

In his recent visits, Obama spoke at an event for the Rev. Al Sharpton and held a $30,800-a-head fundraising dinner in Harlem.
