Depending on what you are doing, you might not want or need multisite. In that case, this should work:
$old_prefix = $wpdb->set_prefix( $site_1_prefix );
// get posts, etc., here.
$wpdb->set_prefix( $old_prefix );
See wpdb::set_prefix(): https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/classes/wpdb/set_prefix/
