I'm from NYC... it's rare that I initiate conversation with people I don't know beyond a quick hello. If they sit there every evening my assumption is they are their to enjoy the sunset... I would leave them in peace as I would appreciate being left in peace in their shoes.

Of those three choices, I'd probably just wave (sort of a #2). That leaves them in peace but is friendly.

Or... 4. Offer to build them a bench so they don't have to lug their chairs down every day (if that's doable and the grown children don't mind of course)

Oh I love that they're taking that "time out" daily with each other to appreciate their new community.  In the sense of community, I'd have to shout out some kind of greeting so that they knew the warmth isn't just from the weather. ;)    Their response will relay whether or not they're interested in engaging more.
