A three-body model of $^{14}$C+n+n is applied to study the energy spectrum and the hindered $E$2 transition in $^{16}$C. A realistic two-nucleon potential is used for the valence neutrons. Both spin singlet and triplet components for the neutrons are taken into account. The three-body problem with a Pauli constraint is solved in a stochastic variational method. For the n-$^{14}$C potential chosen to reproduce the properties of $^{15}$C, the low-lying energy spectrum agrees reasonably well with experiment, but the ground state is predicted to be about 1 MeV high. The calculated $B(E2$; $2_1^+ \to 0^+_1)$ value is about twice the measured value if the polarization...
