Originally organized as one of the first engines in the paid department, Engine 1 entered service in the former quarters of volunteer Northern Liberty Engine 42, at One Centre Street, in lower Manhattan, on July 31, 1865. Disbanded in 1868, they were reorganized five years later at 165 West 29th Street, in midtown Manhattan, on February 17, 1873. They moved to their present quarters, which they share with Ladder 24, at 142 West 31st Street, on November 3, 1946.

In past years, several special units including Water Tower 3, Searchlight 21, Department Ambulance 1, High Ladder 1 and the chiefs of the Third Division, were also located in these quarters. Their first alarm district is made up mainly of high-rise commercial office buildings and factories and includes the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Pennsylvania Station, Macy's Department Store and many hotels. In 2005, Engine 1 was the 5th busiest engine company in Manhattan and 14th in the overall city. They responded to 4,821 alarms in 2005, of which 3,668 were workers. Of these, 1,990 were medical emergencies, in which they were 1st in Manhattan and 2nd in the entire city.

Their current apparatus is a 2001 Seagrave JB model 1000 gpm pumper, with a 500 gallon booster tank, carrying FDNY registration number SP01002. This replaced their similar 1997 Seagrave, which was destroyed at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01.
