Outline around multiple polygons

I have an area that contains one polyon for every 1/2 square mile area and these polygons are all connected.  For example, if you were to take the city of New York and cover it with adjoining 1/2 square mile polygons.  I want to create an outline that goes around the whole area and not each of the 1/2 mile polygons.  For example, I want to create an outline of New York City which is represented by the adjoining 1/2 square mile polygons.  Buffer will buffer each individual 1/2 square mile polygon - I want the outline to be around all of the 1/2 square mile polygon.  Can anyone help?
