What the hell are you supposed to do on New Year's in New York?

I didn't do anything for New Year's last year. Nobody invited me anywhere, and I ended up lying and saying I was sick to disguise that fact. I can't use that lie two years in a row, but nobody's invited me anywhere this year either. I've always wanted to live the life of being invited to multiple holiday parties, but people I know can't even be bothered to invite me anywhere on non-holidays (Right now, as I type this, they're hanging out without me, and it apparently goes completely over their heads that I can drop endless hints about wanting to leave the house, wanting to actually see people, etc. Of course I can't bring it up directly, that never works either.)
So assuming I have to go somewhere alone, what is the least douchey option? I don't know how to navigate this. I wish I could go somewhere with friends or at least with company, but that isn't an option. My options are to find someplace to go or to stay at home depressed again.
And for fuck's sake, nobody say Times Square. I hate Times Square. I assume this should be a given, but you never know.
