Within the Forgotten Realms setting, where do you recommend plugging in the City of Blackmoor and the City of Greyhawk?

In my dad’s games, he sticks Blackmoor where Unther and Mulhorund (unsure of spelling. The Egyptian area) are located in the official canon.

Here is a map for easy reference.

Dunno about Blackmoor but I reckon Greyhawk would fit pretty easily somewhere on the shores of the Sea of Fallen Stars.
If Americas, then Anchorome can work, with Greyhawk on south side of the large lake there?

But if Europe, then Blackmoor in north side of Frozenfar, and Greyhawk in south side of Sea of Fallen Stars could work.

Maybe Greyhawk is equivalent to or near Shining Plains, relating to Lake of the Long Arm?

I'd be tempted to put the Flannaes on the other end of the big old desert to the East of Faerûn.
I see

Flanaess ≈ Europe
Oerik ≈ Asia

And the Flanaess-Oerik supercontinent as an East-West mirror image of Eurasia, where Europe is in the East and Asia is in the West.

But when approximating Forgotten Realms, Flanaess can might instead correspond to Anchorome (Americas), and Oerik correspond to Shou Lung etal (Asia).

That could work: my inclination would be to replace Kara Tur with the Flannaes, however.
Im considering Blackmoor on the coast of the reallife Hudson Bay, and Greyhawk on the river near the reallife Lake Superior. Whence the Americas. Whence north and south of Anchorome (≈ Canada).

I’d keep Greyhawk as a separate planet. Blackmoor can be the Blackmoor area in the World of Greyhawk, or its own planet as well.

The Nyr Dyv is based off of Lake Superior, and its history is loosely based off the same as sung by Gordon Lightfoot.

Wouldn't you place it in the area of FR where it matches you campaign? If the City of Greyhawk is more historical England, you place it in Waterdeep or such and not in FR Egypt or FR Mexico. I guess it is rather easy to change the flavor to match your campaign, but then why not just keep it in Greyhawk?
