called in and nothing they can do, really pushed for them to rebook me on the 5AM to PHL and from Philadelphia I will catch a train to New York. Only alternative they offered was 2 days later at 10pm.

I've never been to Philadelphia in my life, and honestly hope that they will poney up for the train ticket.
You should see if you can get them to book you on ZFV-EWR. It's a UA codeshare with Amtrak from Philly: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-airlines-mileageplus/374107-united-amtrak-codeshare-faq-including-zfv-philadelphia-28.html

There's a $8 or so (cash only) train from PHL to ZFV
