How should I buy a mattress? [more underneath]

I've heard that paying a little more for a really good mattress will mean that you won't have to replace it for a good long time.
How can I assure, besides the obvious lying-down-on-it-in-the-store test, that I've got a good, durable mattress that will last? How long should I expect it to last? How much should I expect to spend for, say, a queen-sized mattress + box spring of decent quality? Any recommendations of places in NYC or the metro area to shop?
